Licensing and Professional Development

Many New York State licensing boards and professional organizations require that licensees complete a pre-specified number of continuing education hours per license period. The goal of such continuing education units (CEUs)–also referred to as Professional Development Units PDUs and Continuing Professional Education CPEs– -is to help professionals in various industries remain current on best practices, business methods, processes, and new regulatory requirements that allow them to create, maintain, and improve upon their fields.

Please note: Please contact your own licensing board, association, or organization to find out complete requirement details.
