The CEU Equivalency Petition allows individuals who are certified as a CPRE or CPRP with the National Recreation & Park Association to petition for acceptance of continuing education unit equivalency for courses, institutes, and workshops that do not offer CEUs or college credits. When awarded, CEU equivalents are not actual continuing education units and are only good for maintaining CPRE and CPRP certifications.
Disclaimer: IPRA reserves the right to accept or reject any petition at its own discretion. IPRA's CEU policy and the IACET Standards do not permit commercial or promotional material of any kind to be included in any educational opportunity.
Fees: $5.00 for each 0.1 CEU equivalent approved (0.1 CEU = 1 hour). For example, if you are petitioning for 5 hours of continuing education unit equivalency, your fee would be $25 upon approval (0.5 CEUs x $5 = $25).
Timeline for Approval: Once the petition is completed, IPRA will review and contact the applicant with a status of the petition within 7-10 business days. Upon approval, an invoice will be sent to applicant for payment, which must be made within 30 days of notification or the petition's approval will expire. When payment is received, a CEU form will be provided.
