The NVFC is pleased to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) on select courses. These CEUs are provided by Columbia Southern University. Current eligible courses are as follows:
Behavioral Health for the Fire Service (.1 credit)
Incident Safety Officer (ISO) Series (.4 credit)
Fireground Accountability: Daring Not to be a Statistic (.1 credit)
Obesity in the Fire Service (.1 credit)
Preventing and Coping with Suicide in the Fire and Emergency Services (.2 credit)
These courses are free for members; however, there is a $20 service fee from CSU to issue the CEU. The price is normally $25, but because the NVFC is a learning partner to CSU, NVFC students receive a five dollar discount.
To get the CEU, follow these steps:
Take the eligible course in the NVFC Virtual Classroom. Refer to the list above to see which courses are approved for CEUs; it will also be noted in the course description.
Once you’ve completed the course, the NVFC will submit your grade to CSU – nothing for you to do here!
CSU will then contact you to explain the next steps you need to complete, which includes filling out an online Participant CEU Request form and paying the $20 service fee.
Once these items are completed, CSU will mail you your CEU certificate within 7-10 business days.
Please note that this process must be completed for each course for which you wish to obtain credit.
