Definitions: Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and Continuing Education Contact Hours (CEs).

Credit is only for the actual time in which training is provided - breaks and lunches or other association activities are not included. To earn educational credit, a minimum of eighty-five percent (85%) or more of each session time is required. Partial credit is not available for any course or session. Attendees are advised to check with their licensing boards and agencies to see which continuing education credits will be accepted.

  • CA Board of Behavioral Sciences (MFT/LCSW);
  • NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals;
  • National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC);
