Continuing Education Units
The Geological Society of America offers Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits for many of its professional
development activities—including short courses, training workshops, field trips, and internships.
One CEU is a nationally recognized unit of achievement that is based upon 10 contact hours of learning. CEUs are
awarded by organizations for continuing education programs that conform to recognized standards for responsible
sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.
Established in 1888, The Geological Society of America provides access to elements that are essential to the
professional growth of earth scientists at all levels of expertise and from all sectors: academic, government,
business, and industry. The Geological Society's membership unites thousands of earth scientists from every corner of
the globe in a common purpose to study the mysteries of our planet and share scientific findings. Owing to its broad
based, professional and long established scientific standing, GSA is well qualified to issue CEUs of the highest
distinction for its professional development programs in fulfillment of its strategic goal, “to promote a robust,
diverse, and sustainable professional geoscience community.”
