About General CEU’s Issued by VCU
CEU stands for Continuing Education Unit. A CEU is a unit of credit for participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice. CEU’s for our events are provided by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Registering for CEU’s allows VCU to record an individual’s successful completion of various activities, allowing individuals to earn CEUs in order to maintain or increase expertise in a career field or renew professional licenses.
While CEU’s are generally used for professional continuing education requirements, anyone can sign up for CEU’s. For professionals, it is solely up to the certifying agency - not VCU - whether to accept or decline VCU CEU’s.
How do I sign up for CEU’s?
You have two options to sign up for CEU’s:
- Sign up and pay online prior to the event at vcu.edu. The event will be posted about a week or two prior to the event start date. If you don’t see it posted when you log-in, check back a few days later.
- Sign up and pay online after the event (within 14 days of the event).
All paperwork and payment is done directly with VCU. BIAV is not responsible for collecting any payments or completing any paperwork for CEU’s.
How much does it cost?

- Pay online on the VCU website (ocpe.vcu.edu )

When do I get confirmation of my CEU's?
