How do I earn CEUs?

Each course and webinar for credit has an associated credit value for contact hours and certification renewal points for Level III members. The attendance or completion certificate will show contact hours only. The registrant may submit their certificate to the certifying body of their organization for conversion into CEUs. Typically, 1 contact hour of professional development equates to 0.1 CEU.

How do I record recertification points under MyASNT?

Each course and webinar that awards renewal points for attendance or completion has a link called “Update Your MyASNT Record with Recert Points.” The conversion is already established in the link. For example, under Category D of ASNT’s certification renewal system, 3 contact hours = 1 recertification point. Thus, for a course worth 1.5 contact hours, 0.5 recert points will be uploaded to your MyASNT membership record. To facilitate the process, eligible members are asked to complete a simple “assessment” by answering one question: “Do you want [number] recert points added to your MyASNT record?” By answering “yes,” the point or points are automatically uploaded.

Can I get attendance credit for watching a video?

If an event or course contains videos, these may or may not be viewable for attendance or completion credit. For instance, videos of presentations from the 2019 ASNT Annual Conference are available for viewing free of charge. However, these videos are of informational value only.

The contact hours earned for the course or event will show once the required items for the certificate are completed.
