Professional CEUS Company Integrates New Technology to Increase Accessibility of its Best-In-Class Professional CEU Development for Professionals with Disabilities

Professional CEUs is dedicated to providing quality, on-demand Continuing Education (CE) opportunities to behavioral health professionals and psychologists who serve individuals in challenged communities with unequivocal Audio & Video training for any learning style to include the launch of its new technology advancement of Closed Captioning, transcriptions, and video speed controls on CE events. These new features will increase the accessibility of professional development to persons who are deaf, hearing impaired and non-native English speakers.

PR Newswire

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Professional CEUs announced today its move toward increasing accessibility to their Continuing Education (CE) activities by integrating exclusive technology which allows users with hearing impairments, deaf, and/or non-native English speakers to obtain CE credits with its new capabilities of on-demand Closed Captioning (CC), transcriptions and video speed controls. Professional CEUs prides itself in providing opportunities for the working professional to access CE events any time and any place and to learn the way the professional learns.

At its launch in 2019, the EduTech company provided CE opportunities through Co-Sponsorships with approved American Psychological Association (APA®), Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®), and Qualified Applied Behavior Analysis (QABA®) continuing education providers like Special Learning, Inc. and designed its platform to include Video-based courses for visual learners and audio file courses for the visual impaired. All the courses are designed for the working professional with its on-demand capabilities and break any barriers that the professional may have in accessing quality, best-in-class courses to support their professional development. To advance Professional CEUs capabilities, adding the option for the user to have closed captioning, transcriptions, and video playback speed controls was already in its pipeline development and is now available for select courses to advance its mission of accessibility of quality on-demand professional development.


According to the World Health Organization, over 5% of the world's population has a disabling hearing loss. The National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) reports that approximately 15% of American adults (37.5 million) report hearing difficulties and troubles. With such high statistics, professionals in the behavioral health space are not immune to these numbers. "By offering Closed Captioning and transcriptions to this professional population, we are able to provide access to quality CE courses to an estimated 25,000+ professionals in the Autism Industry...who would previously have little to no options accessing CE courses " said CEO and Founder, Karen Chung, of Professional CEUs. Professional CEUs will continue to add transcriptions and Closed Captioning capabilities for all its current CE and future CE offerings.


In addition to Closed Captioning and Transcriptions for Professional Development, Professional CEUs added the capabilities for the on-demand video playback speed control. The users now can slow down the recording or speed it up to 2x its recording speed directly from their account. This functionality enables professionals who are non-native English speakers to listen and watch the video slower (or faster) to fully comprehend the presentation and get the most out of their professional development.
