The path to maintaining professional licenses, designations and other credentials can add up. If you are looking for resources, like many others, we thought it would be a good idea to compile all education credits in one place - what they are, why you might need them and where to get them.
First, let's explore all the acronyms awarded by different organizations:
CE (Continuing Education) Hours
CEU (Continuing Education Units)
LU (Learning Units)
1 hr of training = 1 LU l LU hours are used by AIA for architect licensing requirements, but are used for other industries and organizations (such as Trane and engineering licensing requirements).
PDH (Professional Development Hours)
1 hr of training = 1 PDH l PDH hours are used for engineering specific programs and often are interchanged with CE hours, such as Trane ENL and AEE CEM programs
How to get hours? There are two ways you can earn hours: online and events or classroom training programs. Here's a handy list of opportunities broken down by type for your convenience and preference. Some organizations require that you are a member to utilize training.
ACCA l AEE l AIA l ASHRAE l NAPE l NATE l Trane l USGBC
