The Ohio State University at Lima

Continuing Education

We offer Ohio State Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for non-credit professional education and training programs offered by Ohio State departments and faculty members.

CEUs are based upon industry standards of one CEU per ten hours of class time, excluding meals and breaks. When offering CEUs via distance learning, methods for determining hours of class time include referencing the average number of hours spent completing a pilot program offering, the hours for a similar face-to-face training, or similar for-credit course activity hours.

For questions regarding the CEU program or to submit a CEU application, email
