Continuing Professional Education

Continuing education has become a way of life for many professionals who are required to stay current, earn new designations, or maintain licensing in their profession. Continuing Professional Education is committed to providing programs that meet the educational needs and interests of the professional community.

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is designed to meet the requirements of recording, accumulating, and exchanging standardized information about individual participation and learning achievement in continuing education experiences. One CEU is awarded for each 10 contact hours of instruction in a specified continuing education program or activity. The number of contact hours of instruction and appropriate CEU to be awarded is determined prior to conducting a learning experience and only after the purpose and intended learning outcomes, requirements for satisfactory completion, content and content level, format, instructional methodology, instructional staff, and time schedule have been established. CEU records are generated, retained permanently, and are transmitted on a basis similar to the academic transcripts offered by post-secondary education institutions.

Currently KCKCC is offering continuing education workshops to the following professions: real estate, real estate appraisal, law enforcement, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and child care. For additional information, contact (913) 288-7660.
