How to Earn CEUs

CCB accepts relevant CEUs from any organization or event sponsor. Candidates are not required to attend HCCA or SCCE training or events to accrue CCB CEUs. CEUs can be earned from any organization—not just from SCCE or HCCA. This list is a guideline, and may change at any time. CEU values or type may be adjusted once a CCB certification specialist has viewed submissions. CCB CEUs cannot be awarded for networking, social activities, breaks, meals, or time spent in non-instructional activities like question-and-answer sessions. Individuals cannot submit direct job related duties or functions for the purpose of continuing education. Earn Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® continuing education units for participating in the activities defined below.
