Question: What are Professional Development Hours and how to they compare to CEUs?
Answer: Most of the courses on WaterWorldCE are good for one or two hours of continuing education “contact time.” Rules for license renewal vary by state. Many states require water and wastewater system operators to receive a certain number of hours of continuing education credit to renew their licenses. In that case, a one hour course from WaterWorldCE would represent one hour of continuing education credit. Other states require a certain number of Continuing Education Units (CEU). A CEU is defined as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience. In that case, it would take 10 WaterWorldCE courses to represent one CEU.
