Professional Development Credit Options

Continuing Education Units

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW) has been authorized by the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses (IBOL) to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for courses we deliver to IDHW employees and to ancillary external attendees as a means to assist IDHW employees with meeting their licensure renewal requirements. IBOL has authorized the department to offer the following Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for sessions that met their criteria:
