As an instructor you are responsible for providing an unbiased presentation. You are encouraged to give a brief introduction of your qualifications, where you are presently employed, and your hands-on experience in the subject matter. You may also bring business cards but are not permitted to bring marketing materials or conduct any other solicitation.

The points of the outline must be met per State Accreditation; however, we encourage you to add your personal experiences and case studies to your program. We also strongly encourage you to contact the onsite customer to further discuss content of your presentation. In order to be credentialed properly, the presentation needs to be unbiased in nature and free from marketing materials and products.
- Final presentations are required by CEU Institute a minimum of two weeks in advance unless otherwise stated. If requested, the presentation is forwarded to the location for their review/approval.
- CEU Institute does not share your presentation. As an accredited CE provider, we are required by the state boards and regulatory authorities to maintain a copy of the program records in order to facilitate audits for up to 5 years.
- We cannot reserve a speaking opportunity without first approving your CV (Curriculum Vitae) to ensure that you have the required minimum 5 years experience within the topic. Once you have been approved, you will be sent an official confirmation that includes the logistics such as time/place/topic etc. These confirmations are sent out at 90, 30 and 7 days prior to the presentation date.
- As a presenter you are not responsible for providing food for the attendees or CE credits, the sponsor will make arrangements for the attendees to receive any requested food items and CEU Institute will manage all components of CE accreditation.
