Continuing Education Units

 As an IACET Accredited Provider, AGMA offers CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.

The IACET/CEU (CEUs) are calculated based on the number of minutes for instruction. Non-instructional portions of an activity are not considered learning time and, therefore, are not added to the instructional minutes. 1 CEU is equal to 10 hours of instruction. The learning activities allowed to receive CEU awards are face-to-face classes, distance courses, competency-based courses, and other learning events that meet the IACET/ANSI Standards. Partial credit or adjusted CEUs will not be awarded for individuals who do not successfully meet the criteria for achievement of CEUs.

.01 CEU is based on 60 minutes of instruction. CEUs are expressed in tenths and the minimum number of CEUs awarded is 0.1. If the resulting calculation ends in .5 or higher, we round up to the nearest whole number. For example, if the CEU calculation results in .26, the CEU award will be .3.


Sample Calculation:

1 hour plus 20 minutes = 60 minutes + 20 minutes = 80 minutes

Divide 80 minutes/60 minutes = 1.2

Multiply 1.2 X .10 = .12

Final CEU Award = .1
