Continuing Education Credits

States and professional organizations use different units of measurement for professional development activities (credits, CEUs, PDUs, professional growth points, etc.). Exceptional Child courses may be eligible for CEU credits, however, it is your responsibility to verify eligibility with your school administration or state professional development office prior to completing a course.

Our Autism Spectrum Disorder and IEP and Special Education Law course bundles are now eligible for graduate credits through Ashland University.

Certificates of Completion

For each Exceptional Child course that you complete, which includes watching the full course and passing the quiz, you will receive a certificate of completion that contains:

  • Your name
  • Course title
  • Date of completion 
  • Length of course (in minutes)

In addition, you can view your full transcript of completed and in-progress courses within your User Profile.

Verify Eligibility for Continuing Education

To assist you in gaining approval to count your Exceptional Child course work toward continuing education requirements, our Professional Development Planner includes a short summary, the topics covered, and the length of each course.
