Contact hours are used to measure instructional time and/or time allotted for course related assignments such as pre-course exercises or homework. Contact hours are used to calculate CEUs for face-to-face training courses and online courses.

An individual will earn 1 Contact Hour for each hour spent receiving instruction in the classroom or spent completing an equivalent study online. [10 contact hours = 1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit)]
