  Educational Organizations and Course Providers

  (Education hours for "Re-certification" CEUS) All agencies listed in this column meet the criteria for "core" CEUs by the CACCF Re-certification Committee. They are either "pre-approved" ore recommended as "eligible" for "core" CEUS.

Pre-approved courses have been submitted to the CACCF Committee and are guaranteed to be approved for members upon re-certification.

Eligible courses most likely meet the criteria for core CEUs but the course provider has not sent each course for CACCF pre-approval yet or the pre-approval is pending. Members should confirm via a CEU application "before" submitting.
