The total number of CEUs (1.0 = 10 contact hours). Applicants will document completion of at least .2 CEUS (2 contact hours) from each of the core areas.
There are many courses, presentation and webinars that have been approved by NRRTS to meet the Core Curriculum requirements. Many, if not most educational programming provided by manufacturers and other organizations may be accepted to meet the CEU requirement.
Only courses that provide Continuing Education Units (CEU) will be accepted by NRRTS. This means measurable learning outcomes are identified in the course.
Courses will not be accepted toward meeting the Core Curriculum requirement if CEC (Continuing Education Credit) hours are awarded.
An applicant will submit all of their Continuing Education with the application and it will be evaluated and courses accepted on an individual basis to fulfill the enhanced CEU requirement.
