New CEU Courses – Eating Disorders, Suicide Prevention, Alcohol Screening

Due to the number of requests we’ve received to add shorter courses you will see we’ve added 2 small 1 CEU hour courses and 1-2 CEU Hour course. Please Note: NBCC does not recognize courses that are below 2 CEU hours, therefore these courses will not apply towards NBCC credit. See our FAQ topic below the list of courses on ‘What is the difference between NBCC and Standard CEU hours?’

Next month we will be adding a new category to our list – Grief & Loss – which will feature courses written by a new addition to our team, Gabriel Constans. Gabriel has a Ph.D. in Death Education. Keep a look out for next month’s newsletter for more information.

Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered

What is the difference between NBCC vs. Standard CEU Hours?
NBCC stands for the National Board of Certified Counselors. NBCC has a different set of standards on how their approved providers are to determine the number of hours awarded for courses taken by their licensees – thus the separation of course hours into 2 categories: Standard vs. NBCC.

While many state licensing boards approve our courses for license renewal based upon our pre-approved status with NBCC, this does not necessarily mean a participant will use NBCC hours. NBCC stated hours are for those individuals that hold a credential issued by NBCC, such as the NCC (National Certified Counselor), and will be submitting their certificates directly to NBCC for renewal. If a participant holds multiple licenses and credentials – of which one is issued by NBCC – then NBCC hours will take precedence.

The vast majority of our participants will take the ‘Standard’ CEU hours. If your board approves our courses due to our NBCC status you may take either ‘standard’ or ‘nbcc’ ceu hours. Only those participants with credentials issued by NBCC are mandated to take the NBCC hours.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)

The most frequently asked question we receive is how to ‘enlarge’ the fonts of the course reading material in the SmartLook Viewer. When you click on the course material to read in Step 2, it will open in the SmartLook Viewer. Once opened click with your mouse directly on the face of the document. This will enlarge the document. Once in this mode, at the top of the document, you will see a ‘slider’ bar with a – and + sign at each end. The fonts can be enlarged tenfold using this slider bar. The SmartLook Viewer was actually installed to benefit our ‘visually impaired’customers.
