This article will explain how to add CEUs to courses within the Classroom, and how CEUs can flow back into an MC Professional learner's profile.
Adding a CEU
All CEUs are awarded at the Course level. To find the course configuration area, you will navigate to Learning Center > Courses, and click the blue pencil next to any course. Once in the configuration area, to add a CEU, you will click the "Add CEU" button within the course you are creating.
Once you've clicked Add CEU and the CEU fields appear, you can either select a CEU you've previously created from the CEU Type dropdown to assign that to the course, or you can create a new CEU type by keeping "Add new CEU type" selected in the dropdown, giving the CEU a name, and filling out any other applicable fields
Type Name: This field will name the CEU. (Note: if you are using MC Professional and want the CEU to flow into the learner's MC Professional profile upon earning it, you must ensure that that you name it matches exactly to how the CEU category is named within MC Professional).
Units: This is where you can assign the amount of units that will be earned for this CEU type for this exact course. Since you can assign the same CEU type to multiple different courses, you can assign the appropriate amounts of units for each different course.
Expiration Days: If the CEUs for the course you are creating should expire after a certain amount of time from when the learner earns them, you can add in an amount of days after which the credits will expire. For example: if the earned credits should expire within one year after the learner earns them, you would type 365 into this field.
To manage existing CEUs, you can navigate to Learning Center > CEU Management
You can then click the pencil icon next to any existing CEU to edit either the CEU name or expiration period for each (Note: you cannot delete any CEU that is currently assigned to a course. To delete, you will first want to delete the CEU from the course, and then you will be able to delete from the management area).
Earned CEUs flowing back into MC Professional profiles
If you would like CEUs earned within the Classroom to automatically record to a learner's profile within MC Professional, you will want to ensure that you have created the CEU category within MC Professional first (more on CEUs in MC Professional and how to create categories here). Once it exists within MC Professional, you can then create that CEU type within the Classroom. Be sure that the way you have named the CEU within MC Professional matches exactly to the way you create it within the Classroom (all text should be uniform - capitalization, spacing, etc.) as any mismatches will not flow back correctly into MC Professional profiles.
