Continuing Education Units (CEU's) are defined as ten hours of participation in approved classes. CEU's are recognized nationally as a measure of in-service education and training and are often required to maintain professional license or certification. Iowa Western offers a certificate of completion indicating the number of CEU's earned for students who successfully complete approved classes. Note: It is your responsibility to ensure classes are acceptable for your intended purpose.
