Mix Things Up

You’re far more likely to be motivated in your CEU activities if you’re participating in educational programs that actually interest you.

Invest a little time and energy in activities that are a bit off the beaten path for you. If there’s a certain technique, procedure, approach or issue that has always intrigued you, earn some CEUs while you learn more about it.

Try to mix up the learning methods you use. Your options are no longer limited to in-person seminars or classes, or read-and-test correspondence courses. What are the online or distance-education options for obtaining CEUs in your discipline? You can find out by contacting professional organizations or your alma mater, or using an online resource like MonsterLearning.

Just be sure that any online or distance-ed course you take will count toward your CEU total for your particular licensure or certification body. If you’re not sure, ask beforehand and get the answers in writing.

Continuing education doesn’t have to be a useless hassle. Indeed, it can be the fulfilling learning experience the licensing and certification bodies intend it to be — if you’re willing to plan and persist as you pursue your CEUs.
