Continuing Education Credits (CEUs)

Continuing Education Credits
Amigos has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1760 Old Meadow Road, Suite 500, McLean, VA 22102. In obtaining this approval, Amigos has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard which is widely recognized as the Standard of good practice internationally. As a result of their Authorized Provider accreditation status, Amigos is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.

Each qualifying course will list the available number of IACET CEUs in the course description in the Amigos course catalog. For these qualifying courses, each learner who has met the completion criteria for the class will receive a certificate of completion listing both contact hours and CEUs. Contact hours reflect the actual in-class time and one CEU equals 10 hours of in-class time, minus any administrative time spent in class.

Records
Amigos Library Services maintains the permanent record of CEUs earned for each learner who successfully completes a qualifying course. A computerized record is created and maintained once a learner registers for a course. For each course completed, the student’s record will include:

  • Student’s name and numerical identifier
  • Course title
  • Date(s) of the course
  • Number of CEU awarded

These records are kept for seven years.

Release of Learner’s Records
All Amigos learners have the right to review their educational records. To request a copy of your individual educational record, submit a request form available at http://www.amigos.org/files/ceu_transcript_form.pdf. The form must be signed and sent to the Amigos registrar by mail, fax, or email. Within three weeks of receipt of your request, the Amigos Registrar will send your record including all courses for which you have registered and/or attended. Records are released only to the individual student.

Student Notification
Students who have not successfully met the requirements to earn the CEU will be notified by the registrar by e-mail within two weeks of the close of a class.
