2.4 CEUs/24 Contact Hours/24 Soil Tester Certification (Course Id# 14784)

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are a means of recognizing and recording satisfactory participation in non-degree programs. University of Wisconsin-Extension (UW-Ex) awards one CEU for every 10 contact hours in a continuing education experience. Actual contact hours are recorded. CEUs are offered at no additional charge, through the UW-Ex.

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.
