Continuing Education UnitsWhen you successfully complete SAS instructor-based training courses, you earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The CEU, a nationally recognized unit of measurement for continuing education courses, is defined as "10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction."
CEUs give you units of measurement for professional development that can be accumulated and documented. SAS training course CEUs are accredited through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). SAS awards 0.6 CEU units for each day of classroom training or 0.3 CEU units for each Live Web session; therefore, for each three-day SAS training course or 6-session Live Web course, you earn 1.8 CEUs.
