Continuing Education Unit

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as six contact hours of satisfactory participation in an approved course.  The CEU is a nationally recognized measurement of non-credit post-secondary level of learning and is used by many professions as a measure of ongoing training that is required to maintain credentials.  Professionals in many fields of service, including pastors, Christian school teachers, chaplains, counselors and ministry leaders use CEUs to verify an educational experience to maintain or improve skills.

The Children’s Ministries Institute is a recognized provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by the Association of Christian Schools International.  Individuals completing various modules of the Children’s Ministries Institute program as well as other approved training opportunities offered through Child Evangelism Fellowship worldwide may apply for CEUs.

It is the student’s responsibility to contact their local or state education board to ensure that they will accept CEUs from the Association of Christian Schools International before registering for a course.
