Many of the courses we offer can be used toward obtaining Continuing Education Units (CEUs), Certification Maintenance (CM) credits,
and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for transportation professionals.

Continuing Education Units
NHI has been recognized as an Accredited Provider by the International Accreditation for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
In obtaining this accreditation, NHI has demonstrated that it complies with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/IACET Standard,
which is recognized internationally as a standard of good practice. As a result of their Accredited Provider status,
NHI is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.
IACET is an independent, non-profit association whose goal is to ensure quality continuing education
for professionals. For an organization to become an IACET approved CEU Authorized Provider, it must
demonstrate that it designs, develops, and delivers training in accordance with proven adult learning
theory and recognizes instructional systems design practices. Each course description in the NHI catalog
includes the number of CEUs offered upon successful completion of the course.
One CEU is offered for every ten contact hours of training led by a qualified instructor
and qualified instruction. In order to be offered CEUs, a course participant must attend
100% of the course and must pass the course examination with a score of 70% or greater.
CEUs are offered to each course participant who fulfills the above stated requirement.
NHI will maintain individual training records for seven years for the CEUs offered. Individuals
and their employers are also encouraged to maintain their own training records including
course name, class date(s), instructor name, class roster, and CEUs offered.
For proof of your CEU record, please contact us to request your official transcript.
Certification Maintenance Credits
NHI is now offering Certification Maintenance (CM) credits to assist professional
planners become and maintain their membership as certified planners
through the American Planning Association (APA).
American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) is APA's professional institute.
Certified Planners have demonstrated a commitment to high standards of professional
practice and a mastery of theories and tools of planning.
NHI recognizes that the certification carries a high mark of distinction and requires
planners to meet rigorous standards and maintain their expertise through continuing education.
Planners must earn 32 CM continuing education credits every two years in order to stay up to date
on the latest trends, technologies, and best practices. NHI courses will now help them achieve that requirement.
CM credits are measured in contact hours, so that 30 minutes of instructional time equals 30 minutes
of CM credit (30 minutes contact = 0.5 CM credits; 1.0 contact hours = 1.0 CM credits).
An event must be at least 30 minutes in duration to be eligible for CM credit.
For proof of your CM credits, please contact us to request an official transcript.
Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
NHI does not officially offer Professional Development Hours; however, it is possible to
receive PDHs for your completed NHI training courses. To receive PDHs,
please submit your course certificate (which indicates the contact hours assigned to
the course) and/or your official transcript (which indicates the CEUs granted for a course)
to the respective licensing agency. Upon consent, the licensing agency will
convert your hours and/or CEUs into PDHs and proceed with the PDH awarding process.
PDHs are offered on a ratio of one contact hour to one PDH. When converting from CEU to PDH,
please note that one CEU is equal to ten PDHs (or one PDH is equal to one-tenth of a CEU).
NHI Official Transcripts
Your official transcript displays a record of your NHI course history as well as the
CEUs offered for each CEU-accredited course.
To request a copy of your official transcript, contact NHI at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 235-0500.
We'll need your first and last name, the dates and location of your training, and the NHI course number.
Please allow at least one month after the completion of your last course before requesting your official transcript.
Note that transcripts prior to IACET accreditation were not recorded, therefore transcripts for courses taken prior to January 1, 2004, are not available.
