Continuing Education Credit

Continuing Education Units (CEU)

Registrants will receive continuing education units and credit for all modules and plenaries they attend during the meeting.

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized measure of participation in a continuing education program. A CEU is defined as ten hours of program contact (1 CEU = 10 hours of education programming)*.

*In some countries, such as Canada, the term Continuing Education Credit (CEC) is used instead.

Certified Research Administrators (CRA)

The Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC) accepts contact hours for all research administration-related professional development meetings, programs, courses, or activities. One contact hour is equal to one credit hour (1 hour 15 minute sessions = 1.25 hours; 1 hour 30 minute session = 1.5 hours).

Other options to earn contact hours with SRAI for your CRA re-certification include:

  • Write a research administration related article for the Journal of Research Administration and the Catalyst; and/or prepare and submit an abstract, paper or poster for SRAI Symposium;
  • Serve on any of SRAI related review committees or board;
  • Prepare a written program review of an external research administration operation.

For questions regarding CRA Certification and other opportunities, please contact the Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC).
