CEU Group Petition
The CEU Group Petition allows organizations to petition for agency-sponsored sessions to be approved for continuing education units. The following criteria must be satisfied for a petition to be reviewed and accepted:
  1. Session(s) must have title, description, and 3 learning objectives.
  2. Content must tie back to CPRE and CPRP certifications, governed by the National Certification Board (NCB).
  3. Does not compete with future IPRA programming scheduled within 6 months of program being petitioned.
  4. Petition must be submitted at least 30 days in advance of the program / event.
  5. Minimum of 5 registered attendees requesting CEUs.

Disclaimer: IPRA reserves the right to accept or reject any application 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 registered attendee requesting CEUs, minimum $25 per petition. 

Example: If your event has 50 registered attendees and 10 request CEUs, the group's fee is $50 ($5/person x 10 attendees = $50).

Timeline for Approval: Once the petition is completed, IPRA will review within 7-10 business days and contact the applicant with a status of the petition. Upon approval, the following must occur for group's attendees to receive CEUs:

  1. Group will advertise program as CE-Approved by the Illinois Park & Recreation Association.
  2. After program, group will provide list of those requesting CEUs.
  3. Upon receipt of roster, IPRA will invoice group for payment within 10 days.
  4. Upon receipt of payment, attendees receive electronic CEU forms via email.
