The certificate(s) and attendance letter(s) provided by WPS may specify credit in terms of CE Credits, CE Units (CEUs), or both. Additional credit types may sometimes be specified as well. This is because different professional organizations and licensing boards refer to their licensees’ CE experiences in different units.
Some organizations, such as the American Psychological Association (APA), refer to continuing education experiences in terms of CE credits. For these boards, one CE credit is equal to one contact hour or one study hour. Other organizations, such as the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), refer to continuing education experiences in terms of CE Units. For these boards, one CEU is equal to ten contact hours or ten study hours.
You will need to check with your professional licensing board to determine whether they would like you to document your CE experiences in terms of CE Credits or CE Units. Either way, the WPS CE Certificate of Completion or Attendance Letter should serve as appropriate documentation.
