Continuing Education FAQS
How can I meet my CEU requirements?
NAPS has approved many different ways you can obtain CEU credits, including independent study courses, NAPS annual conference, state and regional conferences & seminars, independent trainers and consultants, college courses, professional book/audiotape reviews and in-house training. All of these methods must be approved by NAPS to qualify for the continuing education compliance program.
What are the requirements?
The NAPS continuing education program requires that every year from the date of certification you must meet 17 education hours (often referred to as contact hours) or 1.7 continuing education units (CEUs).
How is a CEU measured?
1 hour of staffing education equals 0.1 CEU; 10 hours of staffing education equals 1 CEU. Therefore each certified professional must have at least 17 hours of continuing education every year.
How do I track my CEUs?
NAPS will provide you with a log sheet to record all CEUs. This is your responsibility. In order to keep your certification intact, you must submit the log sheet each year to NAPS headquarters, along with a $27 administrative fee. DO NOT send any backup materials to prove compliance, such as letters and certificates, unless these are requested by NAPS. When you participate in an approved conference or seminar or seek out training from a NAPS-approved provider, please make sure you receive a letter or form with credit verification.
