CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS (CEUs)   https://www.fmcic.ca/introduction-to-continuing-education/

One attribute of a good pastoral leader is a commitment to being a life-long learner. Growing and learning is at the heart of Christian discipleship. The kind of leadership that we must have for our future is men and women who have a distinctive focus on improving the way they serve and walk with Jesus Christ.

Ordained and Commissioned Ministers (except retirees) are to annually report Continuing Education Units (CEUs) acquired during each year.  Check the link above for information on CEUs, the report form and a list of examples of many different types of life-long learning that can be applied as CEUs.
