Earned Educational Credits Image
To stay on the cusp of technology and best practices in their field and meet specific training requirements, students and researchers are constantly looking for opportunities to attain continuing education credits (CEUs) and/or professional development hours (PDHs). The requirements for CEUs and PDHs are designed to help engineers stay on the leading edge of technology and cutting-edge research, but it can often be difficult to attain these credits or can require significant coordination. To make this process less difficult, IEEE offers on-demand CEU and PDH credits through courses taught by leading experts from many industries. 

Currently, IEEE offers education credits through 7 Resource Centers, all of which span a broad range of topics, ranging from power and energy to aerospace applications to sustainable urbanization.  The Resource Centers consolidate all valuable content such as tutorials, webinars and slides in one, single location. To learn more about how to earn credits, visit the IEEE Resource Centers page.
