What’s the Status of CEU’s?
The Center for Lifelong Learning has traditionally offered Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for purposes of medical or nursing license requirements in several of our course offerings. Requirements from State agencies have recently changed for licensed providers of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for CNA’s, RN/LVN’s and MFT/LCSW’s. We are sorry to announce that SBCC Center for Lifelong Learning is therefore no longer offering CEU’s. Please check online and with other local agencies for offerings elsewhere.
