CEU tracking software provides effective and seamless regulation of continuing education user participation.
Adult learners from a variety of professions utilize continuing education programs to keep up to date with the latest technology, laws, and regulations in their fields. Because today’s workplace is often reliant upon changing technology and advancing knowledge, many professionals are encouraged to upgrade their skills through ongoing training.
In order to measure individual participation and progress in a course, the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has established criteria to standardize the process of issuing credits. These criteria are measured through continuing education units (CEUs) which professionals accumulate as they proceed through the course activities.
Professionals who achieve CEUs not only stay up-to-date in their fields, but also further demonstrate their commitment to improving job performance. It takes about ten hours of course participation to earn one CEU, and most certification programs require multiple CEUs to merit a certificate. Fortunately, for those with continuing education goals, CEU tracking software makes it easy for organizations to manage the accrual of continuing education units.
Key Features of CEU Tracking Software
Software that tracks continuing education units is designed to simplify program administration. With a measureable reference, it is easier for administrators to oversee the learners’ progress throughout the continuing education programs. Upon program completion, learners are electronically able to generate the corresponding certificate of achievement.
The goal of any successful continuing education software is to eliminate unnecessary administrative tasks while providing a seamless, easy-to-use framework that houses and facilitates adult learning activities.
