Participants earn one CEU for each 10 "contact" hours spent in an organized educational activity. According to requirements set by the National Task Force on Continuing Education, this activity must meet under the direction of an approved sponsor and qualified instructors.

Generally, a 60-minute clock hour is the standard of measurement for each contact hour. Any portion of an hour does not count toward CEUs. The total number of CEUs awarded depends on how much time a participant spends in a formal learning situation.
