Continuing Education Units (CEU's) 

IIDA Professional and Associate Members are required to complete and report 10 CEU's (10 hours) of Continuing Education prior to December 31 of each year. All Professional and Associate Members (active and inactive) including Educators, IIDA Fellows, and Chapter Officers must adhere to IIDA compliance requirements. Below are some of our frequently asked questions about CEU’s.

If you have additional questions please reach out to our VP of professional Development, Eden Stringham, at

What is the current compliance period?

The current compliance period runs from Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2019. IIDA Professional and Associate Members are required to complete and report 1.0 CEU (10 hours) of continuing education prior to Dec. 31, 2019. This allows you two years to complete the 10 CEU requirements. If you became a Professional or Associate Member after January 1, 2018 your first compliance period begins January 1, 2020.

What kinds of CEU’s are accepted by IIDA?

IIDA accepts all IDCEC approved courses. It is the responsibility of each Member to maintain their own records.

Please review the Helpful Hints attachment before using the IDCEC CE Registry.
