We welcome a variety of educational activities that qualify for SEUs toward your certification renewal. These continuing education opportunities should relate to agile and Scrum, allowing you to answer the question: "How did this continuing education opportunity help me develop as a Scrum or agile practitioner?"
Please visit our SEUs page to learn more about submitting SEUs for each category. SEUs follow a 1:1 ratio, where one hour of participation or preparation is equal to one SEU. For example, if you attended a training course that lasted 10 hours, you would submit the continuing education opportunity as 10 SEUs.
Note: Work experience or compensated Scrum services do not qualify for SEUs.
Below are some examples of continuing education opportunities that can be submitted as SEUs:
- Attended a training course (online or in-person) note: Scrum Alliance Certification courses are not eligible for SEUs because they are not considered continuing education, but simply education.
In addition, earning a new certification with us automatically extends all other certifications and syncs the expiration dates . It is for this reason that our courses do not count for SEUs.
