Below are details and resources regarding Continuing Education Requirements for Washington State and AMTA.
What is a CEU?
One (1) Continuing Education Unit is equal to 10 hours of continuing education. The state of Washington and AMTA require Hours of education, not Units. If a class or workshop states that it offers 5 CEUs, then that class or workshop should be a total of 50 hours. If it is not 50 hours, but only 5 hours, then you would receive .5 CEUs, or 5 hours of continuing education.
