Pierce College Community and Continuing Education is approved by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to provide clock hour certification for K-12 public school instructors. This certification is available for all programs offered in this section.

Requests for clock hours must be made at the time of registration or within the same quarter year in which the class was completed. A $20 fee is added to the course fee to offset printing, mailing and record keeping costs. Call 253-840-8452 for more information.

Participants purchasing Clock Hours and CEUs are encouraged to check with their employing agency to find out if these certifying units will be accepted. Community Education does not maintain a listing for each employing agency.

Community and Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

CEUs are available for Community and Continuing Education classes for a processing fee of $20 per class. One CEU is available for every 10 hours of class attended. CEUs provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant, non-credit educational experience.

To get CEUs, let registration know when you sign up for a class. For more information, call 253- 840-8452. Requests for CEUs must be made at the time of registration or within the same quarter year in which the class was completed.
