Need Continuing Education or a Certificate?

CDC’s Training and Continuing Education Online system (TCEO) has been the primary system that provides access to CDC educational activities for CE. To improve the learning experience, CDC’s continuing education (CE) process is moving from TCEO to CDC TRAIN.

Beginning January 1, 2024, many activities that offer CE from CDC will be listed in CDC TRAIN. Older modules will continue to use the TCEO system throughout 2024 to provide CE. Specific instructions are provided at the end of each module to guide you to the appropriate system.
