The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized method of quantifying the time spent in the classroom during professional development and training activities. Ten hours of instruction = 1.0 CEU. One hour of instruction = 0.1 CEU.
The Professional Development Hour (PDH) is a term established by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) in their “Continuing Professional Competency Guidelines.” In these guidelines, NCEES defines the relationship between CEUs and PDHs as: 0.1 CEU (1 hour of instruction) = 1 PDH; 1.0 CEU (10 hours of instruction) = 10 PDHs.
APWA is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education & Training (IACET). APWA complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence for instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation APWA is authorized to issue the IACET CEU.
