## CEU Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the number of continuing education units:

CEU = CT / 10

- Where CEU is the continuing education units
- CT is the total amount of contact time (hours)

The total contact time can further be broken down into the following equation:

CT = (MFA – MNAA) / 60

- Where MFA is the minutes for all activities
- MNAA is the minutes for non-allowable activities

## CEU Definition

A CEU, short for continuing education unit, is defined as 10 hours of contact of learner interaction with the content of the activity achieving a goal of supporting a learning outcome.

These units are used to evaluate professionals’ ability to continue learning and keep or maintain their licenses in their fields.

## Example Problem

How to calculate CEU?

**First, determine the total minutes of all activities.**For this example, the total minutes for all activities was 400 minutes.

**Next, determine the total number of non-allowable minutes during that time.**The amount of time of non-allowable minutes was 60 minutes.

**Next, subtract the non-allowable minutes from the total.**400 – 60 = 320 minutes.

**Finally, calculate the total number of continuing education units.**Using the formula above, the number of CEUs are calculated to be:

CEU = CT / 10

CEU = 320/60/10

CEU = .533
