Calculation of CEUs

Calculation of CEUs is based upon clock hours. One CEU is given for each 60 minutes of attendance or participation that is fixed in length. Fractional parts of an hour less than 45 minutes in duration will not be considered a full hour credit. For example, a program that is 2 1/2 hours long is equivalent to two CEUs.
