Tips on How to Earn CEUs for Recertification

Community Education

There are three kinds of community education that can count toward recertification. One option is to attend a one-hour (minimum) educational session, live or online. Recorded webinars found here also meet this requirement. There is no quiz associated with an individual webinar (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 CPS Certification profile. You can mix and match to total one hour (minimum requirement).
