Continuing education for recertification
There are several ways to fulfill your continuing education hours (CEH's) requirements. You can attend workshops at conferences, conventions or that are sponsored by agencies or organizations. Taking webinars and participating in teleconferences are also ways to gain CEH's. You can attend classes at colleges and/or universities and continuing adult education are offered at both. If your employer offers training and continuing education that is another option.
Below are some online resources for CEH's:
