CEU Information
BWCC attendees are encouraged to seek CEU credits from the appropriate agency based on an individual's level of participation in BWCC programs.

The CEU application process is now tailored to the CEU requirements of each certifying entity (state regulatory authority or association certifier). Until recently, the application process across entities was relatively uniform. However, application processes have diverged to the extent that it is no longer feasible for BWCC staff to provide blanket CEU application services. BWCC staff will submit the final BWCC program to those states and agencies listed below that may accept the BWCC Technical Conferences program for CEU evaluation. It is up to individuals to submit their application to their desired accreditation authority.
