The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) was created to provide a standard unit of measure, to quantify continuing adult education and training activities, and to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences.
Purpose of CEUs
CEUs are typically used to supply an employer or prospective employer with information about continuing education and training experiences and to provide documentation to registration boards, certification boards, or professional organizations.
Measuring CEU Credit
One CEU equals ten contact hours of participation in organized, continuing education experiences under responsible, qualified direction and instruction.
Earn CEUs Through MRA Courses
MRA has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In obtaining this accreditation, MRA has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard which is recognized internationally as a standard of good practice. As a result of their Authorized Provider status, MRA is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that quality under the ANSI/IACET Standard.
CEU Provider Certification Standards
IACET Authorized Providers complete a comprehensive application and undergo a strict evaluation of their educational processes according to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard. Only IACET Authorized Providers can offer the IACET CEU, the hallmark of quality in continuing education and training. For individual learners, certifying agencies and education providers, IACET CEUs demonstrate that a program has paid attention to such elements as developing clear learning outcomes, assessing learner needs, and conducting thorough evaluation to ensure continuous improvement.
IACET Authorized Providers status means the organization demonstrates compliance with proven, research-based standards created in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education and is dedicated to high standards for quality in continuing education and training.
