Do you want to obtain CEU approval for your OWN courses? Let us help!
The first step is to determine which agencies will draw a bigger audience and get your courses registered with one or more of these providers. When we are getting courses approved, we determine the highest common denominator and build to that standard. That way, the training can be approved by ALL of the agencies. Keep in mind that the courses can contain very little information on your specific company, product or solution. The first thing you must decide is which CEUs you are trying to target. There are many to choose from— ASIS, CSI, NSCA and ALOA.
NICET is not an educating body. They only serve as a certification agency. So they do not offer or officially approve any courses for CEU's. In fact, NICET does not even call it a "CEU" but rather a "CPD" or continuing professional development unit. One way to get NICET CPDs is to know what NICET considers appropriate learning materials to support their many certifications.
For most of the continuing education that you develop, the 90/10 rule applies. This means that most providers require the content have 90% industry information and only 10% product or solution specific information. There are exceptions to this such as with AIA.
CEU requirements can be confusing because not all organizations use the same terminology.
In most organizations,1 CEU = 1 hour of training, but there are some exceptions.
