CEU Opportunities for CPRP Renewal!

Continuing education is an important part of any career, helping individuals stay current with the rapidly evolving trends and issues facing their chosen profession. Certified Park and Recreation Professionals (CPRPs) are required to earn 2.0 CEUs during their two-year certification cycle. If you have your CPRP and are looking for CEU renewal opportunities, there are a variety of ways to do so, including NRPA online learning and educational events, such as those held at our annual conference; completion of local events or trainings; petitioning for credit through the NRPA CEU Petition; and with Professional Service Experience (PSE) that can be earned through certain volunteer services, such as speaking at the NRPA Conference or serving as a CAPRA visitor. For more information on CEUs and CPRP renewals, visit
