Frequently Asked Questions
CE, or Continuing Education, courses are typically short, targeted content workshops and may be taken by anyone to hone their skill set for career, personal development; or to meet requirements to hold or retain certain licenses.
CEUs, or continuing education units, are used to gauge knowledge and time spent in a course or studying a certain topic.
Florida Tech’s CE courses can be for anyone but are specifically made for people in or interested in the field of behavior analysis. Parents, teachers, behavior analysts, psychologists, social workers, counselors, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, individuals who work or live with persons with special needs, students seeking their degree in applied behavior analysis or psychology and students seeking their BCBA® or BCaBA® certification may find these courses enlightening.
Some courses earn credit for popular human resource professional organizations SHRM® or HRCI®. You can search for either organization in our catalog to show only eligible courses. Confirm before enrolling by noting which organization and the number of credits that are earned on the enrollment page.
In addition to providing instruction for individuals working people with special needs, Florida Tech also offers CEs that can be applied to other fields that require human contact. Our organizational behavior management (OBM) courses appeal to a wide range of professionals across many industries.

You will only need to submit your certificate of completion to the BACB to document the credits earned. Please classify it as an ACE event.
