Continuing Education (CEU)

Do you want to earn Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credit for a workshop, retreat or event your chapter is planning? Are you, as an individual PAUMCS member, planning to attend a seminar or class for professional growth and development? Follow the guidelines below to receive CEU credit.

Submit your request for CEU approval to the Professional Training and Standards (PTS) Chairperson, Heidi Careaga, at least 30 days prior to the workshop, retreat, event, seminar, or class. This allows the PTS Committee time to review the information and for the Chairperson to be in contact with you should there be any questions or concerns regarding the information submitted.

  • Include detailed information about the event: topic(s), dates, times and location, the actual time you will be in sessions (contact hours), an outline or schedule, speaker(s) credentials and/or qualifications. Submit event information by email. This will help to expedite the process.
  • The PTS chairperson will notify you after your request has been reviewed and approved by the PTS committee.
  • Send a copy of the CEU completion certificate for each certified secretary to the PTS Chairperson as soon as possible following the event.

Questions about the process may be addressed to Heidi Careaga, PTS Chair.
