Continuing Education Units
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded upon satisfactory participation in non-degree-credit programs offered by The Hillsborough Community College based on the national standard developed by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. The criteria for awarding CEUs is based on the ten criteria issued by that organization. One (1) CEU is defined as “ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.” An hour of time is based on the sixty (60) minute hour. “Satisfactory participation (attendance) in attendance monitored programs or 80% pass rate on programs utilizing objective evaluations.
CEU’s are not convertible to degree-program credits. Specialized versions of certain CEUs such as state board certified (SB-CEUs) or life education units (LEUs) are utilized in certain professional areas. Where such specialized credits are awarded, those credits conform to the standards of the monitoring or regulating institution/association.
Social Security Number Collection Usage
For any workforce program, funded through the Agency for Workforce Innovation (AWI), HCC uses your SSN as an identifier for program enrollment and completion. Also, it is used for entering placement information into the statewide data collection and reporting system. Because these are performance-based contract programs, AWI requires that all participants and their program-related activities be recorded in the Florida State system. Courses and programs may include Associate in Science, Post-Secondary Vocational Education, College Credit Certificate, and Workforce courses offered through HCC’s Institute for Corporate & Continuing Education.

Certification Programs provide participants with the opportunity to enhance current skills and increase opportunities for success by participation in an objective evaluation process. Participants satisfactorily completing each program evaluation within a carefully planned sequence of individual programs earn certification in a specially designated discipline/content area. Certification programs, where applicable, are described in detail within individual program publications.
