Continuing Education Units
What is a CEU? Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are used by many professions as a measure of ongoing training required to maintain credentials. When you engage in professional learning activities with ACSI or ACSI authorized Providers, you'll earn CEUs recognizing your efforts toward growing as an educator.
Ready to claim CEUs you've already earned?
Receiving CEUs for ACSI professional development is quick and easy. Once you've completed the activity, visit the CEU claim form to submit your request for CEUs. Your CEUs will be awarded in your VPP. Please keep in mind this is only if you earned CEUs from an ACSI event, conference, seminar or webinar. This does not include CEUs earned from ConNEXUS Premium or from an ACSI approved CEU Provider. Submit a CEU claim for CEUs you've already earned.
Where do I find approved CEUs?
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are used by many professions as a measure of ongoing training required to maintain credentials. Some of the certification requirements in Biblical or Educational studies can be met using CEUs. The credit evaluation form you will receive with your certificate will indicate which requirements may be met with CEUs.
Typically, courses are provided through member schools, individuals, or organizations recognized and approved to fulfill this role. Here is a list of organizations and individual providers only. These are ACSI approved CEU Providers and offer online courses that are ACSI-approved.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This list is simply a tool for you to use if you are looking for additional CEU options. The approved courses on this list are only approved if you take them from that particular CEU Provider. Seeing a course on this list does not mean that you can take the course anywhere and receive CEUs. All courses must be approved specifically for the CEU Provider that would like to offer the course. It is your responsibility to make sure the Provider that you intend to take a course from is an ACSI-approved CEU Provider. You can email the ACSI CEU Coordinator to verify.
Interested in becoming an ACSI approved CEU Provider?
ACSI has recognized many CEU Providers that can provide training and award CEUs in biblical or educational studies for ACSI educators. This process begins with the school, individual or organization completing and submitting the appropriate online application form.
How many instructional hours are required for a CEU?
Six (6) hours of direct instruction are required for one CEU. Study assignments, reading, writing, and research time are not included in the six hours. ConNEXUS Premium is ACSI's online learning platform. With an annual subscription to this learning tool you can earn ACSI approved CEUs 24/7. For more information on how you can get connected to ConNEXUS Premium please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Florida Master In-Service Program
The ACSI Florida Region is pleased to offer a Master In-Service Program for those schools that have state-certified or ACSI certified teachers and administrators. The program is available through Education Enterprises and is approved through ACSI. The program allows teachers and administrators to earn in-service points and/or CEUs for workshops, classes, and conferences attended throughout the school year. These points/CEUs can then be used to renew Florida and/or ACSI certification. The Master In-Service Program also provides Clinical Education Training for those desiring to be approved for student teachers and for accredited schools to offer the Florida PECD Program.
Approved CEU providers may request the Model CEU Certificate document by contacting the CEU Coordinator. Please be aware, however, that all CEU Providers are asked to upload earned CEUs directly into the participant's Virtual Professional Portfolio (VPP) rather than award a paper CEU certificate. All teachers in ACSI member schools have a VPP. If someone takes and completes a course offered by an ACSI approved CEU Provider who does not work for an ACSI member school and therefore does not have a VPP, a paper CEU Certificate can be awarded.
