Our CEUs

CEUs are an effective way to measure, record, and report a person’s participation in continuing education activities. They are a nationally recognized and respected method of granting non-degree credit. Each EPA Institute course is granted CEUs by our organization and participating associations.

EPA Institute assigns one CEU for each hour a course is measured to take. An example is below.

Clean Air Act (2 hours) = 2 CEUs by EPA Institute.

Different organizations measure CEUs differently so it is important that you check with us or with your organization to see how many continuing education credit participating organizations assign to each EPA Institute course. Check each course description page to see how many CEU’s/CMP’s an organization has authorized for each course. If you do not see your member organization, please contact us and we will pursue accreditation through that particular organization in which you are a member of.

EPA Institute CEUs for each course are stated following each course title in the above course description pages.

College and University Credit

Since CEUs are not equivalent to academic credit, they are considered non-degree units of credit. However, some colleges and universities accept CEUs. Please check with your institution or States Department of Education for details.
