The Board of Certified Professional Organizers (BCPO) announced this week that Continuing Education Unit (CEU) eligibility requirements have been revised to include some online and recorded courses. The revised CEU eligibility requirements are as follows:
1. Classes must be at least 60 minutes long.
2. Classes must provide skills and knowledge that allow you to better serve your clients.
3. Classes must be live, web-based, or recorded.
4. For initial certification, at least 70% of the CEUs claimed as substitute hours must be for live classes; up to 30% may be for web-based or recorded classes.
5. For re-certification, of the 45 required CEUs, at least 30 must be for live classes; up to 15 may be for web-based or recorded classes.

We offer online and recorded courses that are eligible for certification CEU's that you can attend by online live Webinar or recorded Self-Study Program options. Unit I is primarily focused on forming your business. Unit II, Unit IV and our new GO System training provide you with skills and knowledge that allow you to better serve your clients.

All of our courses are the most comprehensive and at a very lowest cost comparable to other programs in the market. And, remember professional development is a deductible business expense.

Don't wait until the last minute to realize you don't have the CEU's you need to certify or recertify. Continue your education throughout the course of your profession to stay on top of the latest industry information and knowledge.

and join me for your continuing education and start earning your CEU's toward certification or recertification now.
