AEA Learning Online is now able to offer some of our training modules

for Continuing Education Units (CEUs).


AEA Learning Online issues CEUs on successful module completion, which includes, reading content, viewing video content and successful completion of module assessments. One CEU is equal to ten hours of participation in a training module. Modules that take less than 10 hours are offered for partial CEU credit. AEA Learning uses this formula for calculating CEUs: 10 Clock hours = 1 CEU and 1 Clock hour = 0.1 CEU.


AEA Learning Online has worked to make sure that the content of our trainings have been created and vetted by professionals across the state of Iowa. Trainings are updated as new information becomes available.

Once a person has completed a training module that is available for CEUs, they can obtain a certificate for $20.


Certain professions require that practitioners earn a specific number of CEUs per year to ensure that they are up-to-date with current practices in their field. Proof of credits earned is necessary in order to renew a professional organization certification or a license. The number of CEUs required varies by state licensing board or professional organization. If you organization requires a Pre-Approval Form for CEUs, make sure that you submit one and receive approval before registering for a module.


It is up to the decision of the credentialing organization/agency to determine if a CEU certificate from AEA Learning Online meets the requirements of that organization. The CEU certificate will list the following information:

  • Module title,

  • Module description,

  • Date completed,

  • Amount of seat time and CEU credit equivalent,

  • Name of content creator that created and vetted content

AEA Learning Online does not guarantee acceptance of CEU certificate by other organizations. If additional information is needed by your organization, AEA Learning online will work with you to provide the additional information.

Note: Iowa teaching licenses and certifications issued by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners (BoEE) do not use CEUs but require license renewal credits. CEU certificates are NOT the same as the relicensure credits. The Iowa Board of Nursing does not accept CEUs from AEA Learning Online.

The following training modules are available for CEUs:

  • Mandatory Child and Dependent Adult Abuse Training

  • Iowa Early Learning Standards

  • Teletherapy

About AEAs

Iowa's Area Education Agencies (AEAs) were created in 1974 by the Iowa legislature to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children from birth through age 21.
