CEUs are offered at no additional charge, through the UW-Ex. In order to receive a certificate, participants need to sign up for CEUs at the time of registration. | .5 CEUs (5 contact hours) when attended in full

UW-Ex CEUs fulfill continuing education requirements for many professionals, agencies and organizations. Professional associations may have specific licensing requirements. Individuals should contact their licensing association before assuming UW-Ex CEUs will fulfill all requirements.
