Our Guarantee
If you're not happy, we're not happy. If you feel a tutorial does not meet the high standards you have come to expect from USENIX, let us know by the first break and we will change you to any other available tutorial immediately.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
USENIX provides Continuing Education Units for a small additional administrative fee. The CEU is a nationally recognized standard unit of measure for continuing education and training and is used by thousands of organizations.
    Each full-day tutorial qualifies for 0.6 CEUs. You can request CEU credit by completing the CEU section on the registration form. USENIX provides a certificate for each attendee taking a tutorial for CEU credit and maintains transcripts for all CEU students. CEUs are not the same as college credits. Consult your employer or school to determine their applicability.
