Earn Credit Hours

PDH, CEU, LU, and More

Whether you’re fulfilling licensing requirements or taking a course for professional development, you will earn credit hours for your time. Earn Professional Development Hours (PDH) or CEUs upon completing courses from UW-Madison. Some courses are approved for AIA Learning Units (LU) as well. Credit hours are listed at the individual course level.

UW’s use of the CEU follows internationally accepted guidelines:
1 PDH1 contact hour of instruction
1 CEU10 contact hours of instruction
1 LU1 contact hour of instruction

1 CEU = 10 LU = 10 PDH 

Note: Course content must be related to your professional practice to qualify for credit in most states. Please contact your state licensing board or professional association to review your specific requirements.
