Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Those who complete any CBCT Foundation Course or CNE or CME course are entitled to apply for continuing education credits (CEUs, CNE credits or CME credits).  CBCT continuing education credits have been approved in the past for licensed counselors as well as other groups; however, we strongly encourage you to confirm acceptance of the credits with your professional organization’s governing body before enrolling. Continuing education credits require attendance at 8O% of all classes. Upon receipt of the $50 processing fee and successful completion of the course, a letter certifying the award of CEUs will be issued to the individual.
