Exams vs Evaluations

Last Updated: Monday, November 29, 2021

Effective March 11, 2019, CEUfast provides two options for obtaining a certificate (*for approved professions and states only). At the end of each course will appear the choice to take an exam or to complete a self-evaluation explaining how the course material will impact or change your current practice. 


If you choose to take an exam, you will make that selection and proceed to answer a series of multiple choice questions. Exams must be passed with a minimum of 80% correct in order to receive a certificate of completion.


If you choose to complete the self-evaluation, you will respond to a few questions in regards to the application of the course material in real-world practice.  Once the evaluation questions have all been answered and submitted, a certificate of completion will be provided.

These two methods for obtaining continuing education are those which have been approved through the ANCC.
