Continuing Education Units
USENIX provides Continuing Education Units (CEUs) 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 USENIX 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.
