Get Started

To earn online continuing education units (available by clicking on blue category tabs below), technicians must carefully review education session materials and pass the corresponding quiz by answering 8 out of 10 questions correctly. Technicians may earn one CEU for each quiz passed per certification cycle. All six required CEUs can be earned through online/web session CEUs per certification cycle.

First, register and create an account on cpsboard.org. You will use your username and password that are unique to cpsboard.org once you create an account. This is different than the username and password you use to log in to your personal certification profile at cert.safekids.org.

Once logged in to cpsboard.org, enter your name and certification number as they appear in your online certification profile so this information is shown correctly on your CEU certificate of completion. Then, print out the certificate of completion after passing each quiz and save for your personal records. These certificates are needed if you are audited after recertification.

A history of your work will be maintained in your dashboard, but we strongly suggest printing/saving copies of your certificates.

To save a copy of your certificate, click “Print this certificate” and choose “Save as PDF” as the printing destination. You can also right click on the certificate and select “Save Image.” In the event your certificate does not auto-populate with your name, certification number, date of completion, etc., try these steps:

  • Check your browser (Chrome seems to work for most people)
  • Clear your web browser’s cache, cookies and history
  • Be sure your internet connection is strong and that you are not blocked by any workplace restrictions

After earning your CEU, log in to your CPS Certification Profile, click on Recertification Activities and follow prompts to enter the CEU under “Category 4: Online/Web Sessions.”

The recorded webinars below meet this requirement. There is no quiz (quizzes are only required for CEU sessions). Community Education is not audited and no proof of completion is provided. After you watch the webinar, enter it in your online profile. You can mix and match to total 1 hour (minimum requirement).
