CEU Credits

.1 CEU = 1 PDH (Professional Development Hour)

Education sessions of at least 50 minutes are eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The CEU is a nationally accepted measure of participation in continuing education activities. By obtaining CEUs, you demonstrate to your employer that you are learning new skills and keeping current with changes in the industry. The American Public Works Association has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). A CEU Request form has been placed in each registration bag.

The Professional Development Hour (PDH) is a term established by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) “Continuing Professional Competency Guidelines” for Professional Engineers (PE). In these guidelines, NCEES defines the equivalency between CEUs and PDHs as: 0.1 CEU (1 hour of instruction) = 1 PDH. (Important note to Florida and New York Professional Engineers: APWA is an approved Florida Board of Professional Engineers provider of Continuing Education. The State of New York recognizes APWA as an approved training provider by virtue of APWA’s standing as an IACET Authorized Provider of CEUs.)

To receive CEUs, the assigned room volunteer must validate CEU Request forms at the conclusion of each eligible session. Only participants that have attended the entire session will receive validation; without validation, the form is invalid. Participants can submit them via mail after the conference. APWA Members do not need to pay for CEU registration; however, participants that are not APWA Members must pay a fee of $20 USD for the cost of CEU registration. Individuals will be notified via email when CEU Transcripts have been processed and are available for secure download via APWA’s website.
