Recertification & CEU’s Although many of us may like to get all our 6 CEU’s at one time by participating in an one-day Update course, that is not always readily available in all parts of our state, and I just want to be sure everyone has access to the on-line resources to obtain your CEU’s so that you can maintain your certification! These links below will link you to other sites that will allow you to read, test/quiz, listen to webinars, etc., to obtain your CEU’s. The CPS Board website and the CPS Certification website has all the information you need to be sure you recertify correctly. http://cert.safekids.org/resources-faqs/forms/recertification http://cpsboard.org/certification-recertification/ Also Tips on recertifying CEU’s: http://cert.safekids.org/sites/default/files/tips_on_how_to_get_ceus_for_recertification _2014-2-26.pdf http://cert.safekids.org/sites/default/files/tips_on_how_to_get_ceus_for_recertification _2014-2-26.pdf Please let me know if you have any questions!
