Information about the CEU Program:

The University of Denver and Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition have teamed up to provide all enrolled students with the opportunity to earn  CEUs for successful completion of the training workshops or classes.  This cooperation is a ground-breaking program and a national model for other partnership training programs.

What is a CEU?

CEU stands for Continuing Education Unit. A CEU is a unit of credit equal to ten hours of participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice various professions.

Examples of people who need CEUs include engineers, lawyers, CPAs, educators, nurses, architects, mental health professionals, and social workers. CEU records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by certification bodies, professional societies, or governmental licensing boards.

To be able to make this offer, CCDC’s advocacy training programs have shown they meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/ IACET standards established for accreditation in our field.

This accreditation program is a unique and valuable opportunity for any individual interested in adding to their professional portfolio. Registration with DU, a one-time $25/unit fee paid to DU, and successful completion of the course is required to qualify for this program.
