CEU Course Review Details and Requirements

Continuing Education (CE) Providers are encouraged to offer quality educational courses for licensed electronic security dealers. AESBL licensees are required to participate in on-going professional education to maintain their license. The CEU review process is an effective tool for marketing an organization’s education courses.

The Association reviews these applications as required by AESBL.  A $75 Fee per course submitted is required and can only be paid by credit card using this system.  We accept Mastercard and Visa only. Please fill out the form, make your payment.

Please read the requirements below to ensure your companies compliance with the State Of Alabama.

Program Criteria

The following minimum requirements are established for continuing education courses reviews:

1.    It is expected that CE Providers use instructors that have the highest quality teaching skills as well as appropriate education, experience, and applicable licensing.

2.    The goal of the class must be to provide quality education. The goal may not be to sell, promote or advertise any products or services.

a.    Courses submitted as “product-specific” which appear to be sales pitches or product endorsements will not receive an AAA course number.

b.    Programs covering “generic” or “product-specific” topics or content may be eligible for accreditation. Generic subject matter means that the skills or knowledge gained by the attendees during the course is easily transferable from one product or product line to another. For example, a course covering selection of correct types of wire for a given system based on the use, environment, load, etc., could apply to any manufacturer or system type.

c.    This distinction is important because AAA does not endorse specific manufacturer’s products. The AAA endorses competence in given areas of expertise. Product-specific courses may be recommended when they are designed to convey application guidelines, proper installation, service, or troubleshooting techniques.

3.    ONLINE COURSES: In addition to criteria 1 and 2, online courses must also comply with the following:

a.    Use an approved method of validating attendance, which may include attendance tracking log files or time on task analysis, credit can be given only for the amount of time the user has actually spent in the online session.

b.    Online provider has taken steps to insure the integrity of the attendance form. Verification of attendance must be issued by online provider and not be self-created by student.

c.    A secure environment must be provided where users are authenticated via a login and password system.

d.    Security must be in place to protect the student’s personal and financial information.

Application Process

Organizations interested in receiving a course number must apply to have their courses reviewed for recommendation.  Applications must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the presentation date.

Applications must include:

1.     Application form

2.    A course syllabus that contains the following:

A.   Brief course description including delivery methods (instructor led, webinar, online, distance learning, etc.)

B.   Length of course plus timed breakdown of the concepts covered.

C.   Intended audience—indicate the intended audience and course content must be a reasonable match for that audience. For example, if the course content was on the installation and adjustment of infrared detectors, the appropriate audience would be installers and service technicians, not sales representatives. Courses with content inappropriate for the target audience will not receive a course number.

D.   Key learning objectives. For example, “At the completion of this course attendees will be able to: understand how EMS will provide dramatic increases in security and reduction in costs, how robotic vision systems save lives and protect property, 

and why they are an important new weapon in the war on terror” is a reasonable objective—for security center operators.  It may not be a good match, however, for the people who have to install, adjust or troubleshoot it.

Each course a CE Provider wishes to have reviewed requires a separate application.  The application form may be duplicated.  Only one application is necessary for programs with multiple presentation dates, providing the presentation does not vary in length or content.

In the event significant changes are made to the course, such as:  course objectives, delivery method, or hours offered, providers must resubmit CEU review application.

Every one hour of qualified education will be eligible for 1 CEU (or renewal credit).

In order for an application to be reviewed and processed it must include a course review fee and the required documentation. 

Alabama course numbers are valid for three years.  Once the Alabama course number time has lapsed, the CE provider shall not use the assigned course number to promote their courses.  It is required that CE providers reapply for a new Alabama course number every three years due to the rapid advancements in technology and codes and standards’ revision cycle.

CE Providers are required to verify attendance of all students and provide them with a  record of their attendance. 


The Alabama Alarm Association is tasked by the Alabama Electronic Security Board of Licensure to review suggested courses by Manufacturers or Companies seeking to provide instruction to licensed security professionals.  Every one (1) hour of qualified education will be eligible for 1 CEU (or renewal credit).

 If you have multiple courses you are required to fill out this form for each.
