    What is a CEU?
    Continuing Education Units are a nationally recognized standard unit of measurement that has been adopted for post-secondary courses not carrying academic credit. One CEU is awarded for every ten classroom hours, provided the participant attends 90% of all scheduled class hours and completes any other requirements set by the instructor. Those students will also be awarded a Certificate of Completion. Permanent CEU records will be maintained by NVCC. CEUs are increasingly accepted as evidence of educational accomplishment and for professional certification. The CEU designation, if applicable, appears under the course code.
