Continuing Education Certification
Continuing Education Units (CEU) or Professional Development Hours (PDH) Credits
A single fee covers Continuing Education Units for the ESW technical sessions and any tutorial(s) attended. This fee only covers the cost of obtaining CEU's for the ESW technical sessions and tutorials if all the requirements listed below for receiving CEU's are completed. Each tutorial, for which CEU's are claimed, must be purchased in addition to the fee for obtaining CEU's.
