We are pleased to introduce the JLI Continuing Education Credit and Certificate Program. For the first time, JLI students will earn CEUs that can be applied towards certificates in four areas of concentration.

A JLI certificate formally recognizes students who have demonstrated their commitment to lifelong Jewish learning. Certificates reflect students’ preferred areas of concentration in their studies.



WHAT ARE CEUs?


Continuing Education Unit (CEU): A standard unit of measurement used to quantify continuing adult education and training activities.

The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant educational experiences.

CEUs are recognized by employers, educational institutions, and professional associations as a verification of the extent of the student’s participation in a particular course of study.


HOW CAN I OBTAIN CEU CREDITS?


JLI students will verify their attendance each week by taking a simple online quiz on the content of the week’s lesson. Each week, students will receive an email with a link to the quiz for that lesson. Students pass the quiz by answering five out of seven questions correctly.

Students may choose to earn additional credit by taking a second quiz on the content of the additional readings found in the course textbook.

To earn CEU Credit, students register in the online registration system, and take and pass the associated quizzes.

Students will earn 1.0 CEU for each 6-week JLI course, with an option to earn up to an additional 0.5 CEU by studying the additional readings in the textbook.

NOTE: Please enter your most frequently used email account when registering, so that you can receive important communications from the JLI central office.


HOW DO I GET DOCUMENTATION OF MY CEU CREDITS EARNED?


At the end of each academic year, transcripts of all CEUs accumulated during the year will be mailed to each student at no cost. Students may request a transcript (cumulative, or for particular courses) at any time, for a processing fee of $10.


HOW DO EARN A JLI CERTIFICATE?


JLI will issue certificates in four areas of concentration:

A. Jewish Ethics
B. Jewish Mysticism and Philosophy
C. Jewish History and Culture
D. Jewish Belief and Practice

Certificates will be awarded to students who accumulate 4.5 CEUs in a given area of concentration and 1.5 additional CEUs in a different subject.

Most JLI courses will be eligible toward more than one area of concentration. The following are the subject designations for the courses of JLI’s 2013-2014 academic year:


Season Courses Jewish Ethics Jewish Mysticism and Philosophy Jewish History and Culture Jewish Belief and Practice
Fall Life in the Balance X     X
Winter To Be a Jew in the Free World     X  
Spring Realizing Your Potential   X   X


CEU credits earned will be on permanent record at JLI’s Central Office and do not expire. Students can apply the credits toward a JLI certificate and/or request transcripts at any time in the future.


WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE A QUESTION OR ISSUE?


Each JLI chapter will have a designated contact for questions and service about the Continuing Education Credit and Certificate program. Your instructor can direct you to the correct person.
