Frequently Asked Questions


 What is a CEU?

A CEU is a "Continuing Education Unit". It is used to measure the amount of continuing education related to your certification/license you have received since you have graduated. A CTRS must have 5 CEUs (50 clock hours) of continuing education every 5 years to maintain their certification.

Will the CEUs I get from SMART CEUs Hub count toward NCTRC re-certification?

All of SMART CEUs Hub's courses must pass the NCTRC pre-approval process before they are posted on the site so you can rest assured that they will count toward your CTRS recertification 🙂 

How is an online course different than a brick and mortar course?

The format of the instruction comes in "units" (AKA parts of sections). There is a book to study along with the course and a quiz to evaluate you knowing the material. This is very similar to attending a classroom where you read books, listen to instructors, and take tests on your knowledge.

 How many CEUs is an online course worth?

This depends on the length of the course. Each clock hour of education you receive equals .1 CEU.
