ASET Continuing Education Units (ASET-CEUs) are awarded to programs that apply to ASET for this designation and meet rigorous evaluation criteria. Attendees are awarded ASET-CEUs for the number of hours in which they participate in a particular program.

ASET-CEUs can be used to document continuing education for re-certification or professional development within a hospital setting, and are recognized by the American Board of Registration of EEG & EP Technologists (ABRET) and the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) for re-certification.
