Continuing Education Course Credits Email to a Friend The credit value of Continuing Education courses that are not equivalent to post-secondary courses is identified using Continuing Education Units (CEU). CEU are used at many educational institutions to define value or contribution toward a full program of study. One unit is granted for every 10 hours of instruction, rounded to the nearest tenth. So, if you are transferring credits to another educational institution, a 42-hour Continuing Education course, for example, equals 4.2 CEU. (This number is not included in any calculation of grade point averages.) However, George Brown College does not guarantee that its courses will be accepted by other educational institutions.
