Earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Each certification requires a specific number of CEUs for renewal. You can earn CEUs by completing activities. In fact, you may have already completed some qualifying activities.
How to Earn CEUs
Your activities must meet the following requirements to qualify for CEUs:
- Timing: Activities must be completed during your three-year renewal cycle.
- Relevance: At least 50 percent of the course content must relate to one or more of the exam objectives for the certification you’re renewing. It is important to keep in mind that CompTIA does not only look at content “topics” to determine whether a course relates to exam objectives. There are other variables, including cognitive level of course content, that is taken into account during our internal review. *
- Documentation: You’ll need to provide documentation for the following activities to receive CEUs:
*CompTIA reserves the right to make a final determination about whether training course content may or may not relate to exam objectives, up to 50%, and leverages an unbiased third party to ensure accuracy throughout the review process.
