Continuing Education can grant either contact hours or Continuing Education Units (CEUs) depending on the needs of the audience. Continuing Education can provide participants with transcripts of their CEU activities. A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is used for activities which do not qualify for college credit. The CEU may be used for the measurement, recording, transfer and recognition of participation by adults in non-credit activities. A CEU is defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction."
