What are CEUs?

Continuing Education Unit (CEUs) are nationally recognized, standard units of measurement for participation in non-credit, continuing education programs. Often CEUs are required in order to maintain professional memberships, certification, or licensing; professional teachers often need to earn CEUs, for example.

Bridge Courses Eligible for CEUs

Bridge is accredited by ACCET (the Accrediting Council for Continued Education and Training), and our programs have been evaluated in accordance with ACCET’s standards, policies, and procedures. Any ACCET-accredited Bridge TEFL/TESOL course can be taken for CEUs, including our Denver classroom TEFL course, the IDELT, as well as our online TEFL/TESOL courses. The formula for calculating CEUs is that you earn 1 CEU for every 10 hours of course instruction.
