Announcement of Website Upgrades

To All of Our Participants:

Thank you for your continued patronage of QUE as your CEU provider.

It is our policy to add 2 – 3 new courses each month to our site. However, March and April reflect huge upgrades to our website and program. As a result, new courses were not added. We are planning for new courses to be added in May.

Upgrades to the website are based upon a gathering of feedback over time from our participants. We appreciate and take seriously your feedback on the exam forms.

Please familiarize yourself below with the changes that have been made and that are still in the progress through the end of April.

The website has been widened and the fonts changed and enlarged throughout to enhance viewing for participants who are visually impaired.

SmartLook Viewer

All course material now opens within the SmartLook Viewer. This was made available to improve the accessibility of our courses to even more participants. Within the Viewer you can: enlarge the fonts, email the course material to yourself or a friend, search for keywords, print the entire document at once or print just the page you are viewing. See how the SmartLook Viewer works.


If you have an email address on file, certificates will automatically be ’emailed’ to all participants immediately after taking and paying for an online exam. As well, certificates will automatically be emailed to all home study participants. Be sure to check your inbox or your ‘spam’ folder for your certificates.

All online exams will be converted from the current ‘drop down’ menu answer choice to a ‘click button’ answer choice. This will make entering your answers on the electronic exam go much faster! You will see this change take place gradually with all existing exams throughout the month of April until all ‘current’ exams have been transferred to the new format.


Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. Telephone Support hours are Monday – Thursday from Noon to 4:00 pm PST. In order to keep prices at a minimum for our participants we are unable to provide full time telephone support. Toll Free (877) 665-3311. Leave a message and your call will be returned within a few hours and no later than 24 hours.

Our online support ticket system functions 7 days a week. You will receive a prompt response. An email address is required to use the online support system.

Important Changes to Online Courses

All course material and exam worksheets in Step 1   and Step 2 when taking an online course will be opened and viewed through our new SmartLook Viewer. No other changes have been made to the electronic exams or any other part of the site that effects testing.

You will now find the material in Step 1 (exam worksheet) and Step 2 (course material) will automatically open in the SmartLook Viewer once the green buttons have been pressed. Additionally, by right clicking with your mouse each button you will be given the option to download the material to your desktop as a pdf file.

The purpose of making this change is to accommodate as many participants as possible by expanding the accessibility of our courses beyond our old format of just PDF or HTML (web) viewing. Flip page technology is the newest technology available on the web for viewing and reading documents from within your browser while providing you with many other options.

Once your material is open within the SmartLook Viewer you will see there are many options available such as:

1. View the material in Full Screen Mode (allows for zooming in and zooming out). This mode also allows participants to change the view from ‘presentation’ to ‘magazine’ to ‘paper’.

2. Press the download button to immediately download and open the document in Adobe Acrobat for reading and printing from your desktop.

3. Click with your mouse anywhere on the document to enlarge the page. Once enlarged you will have full control over zoom in and zoom out capabilities.

4. Print just the page you are viewing. You can print the entire document via use of the download button.

5. Search Feature: search keywords within the document.  This is particularly helpful when trying to answer questions from the exam worksheet. Look up keywords to assist you.

By clicking on the image ‘Need Help?’ below each course you will see a sample of the SmartLook Viewer. We have created descriptions of each of the icons and what they mean. Please take a moment to view this information in order to familiarize yourself with this new technology. You can take a look here if you like.

Quantum Units Continuing Education makes every effort to improve the quality of our program. We do this based upon the exceptional feedback we receive from our participants on your exam form – each and every exam evaluation is reviewed by our staff.

New Online CEUs Added

Dissociative Identity Disorder
Standard CEUs/NBCC CEUs:  8
Course Cost: $24

Considerable progress has been made in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of dissociative identity disorders (DID) during the past decades, as reflected by increased clinical recognition of dissociative conditions, the publication of numerous research and scholarly works on the subject, and the development of specialized diagnostic instruments.  Treating Dissociative Disorders in Adults is a course that was developed using guidelines from the Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, which summarizes expert consensus concerning safe and effective treatment for DID patients.  The course material offers a practical guide for the management of these patients and would be appropriate for any professionals who may encounter these clients or for anyone interested in gaining further knowledge about Dissociative Identity Disorder.

Managing Depressive Symptoms in Substance Abusing Clients

Standard CEUs: 12  Cost: $36
NBCC CEUs:  14     Cost: $42

This informative course was developed using material from the Treatment Improvement Protocol,  Managing Depressive Symptoms in Substance Abuse Clients During Early Recovery, developed by the US Department of Health and Human Services Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. The material was designed for use by substance abuse treatment counselors and other professionals who work with clients who have substance abuse issues and depressive symptoms. When depressive symptoms occur in substance abuse treatment, they can interfere with the clients’ recovery and ability to participate in treatment. This course will help professionals gain the skills necessary to assist clients who are struggling with depressive symptoms, particularly in the first year of treatment.  The course also includes several vignettes which provide specific examples of how to work with clients facing substance abuse and depressive symptoms.

Veterans and Substance Abuse

Standard CEUs: 2  Cost: $6
NBCC CEUs: 1     Cost: $3

Numerous studies show that rates of alcohol and other drug use disorders are high among veterans within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) health care system. This course gives a brief overview of clinical considerations in the treatment of veterans with substance use disorders and other co-occurring mental health issues.  This is an excellent course for any professional who may come in contact with this population or for anyone who is interested in gaining knowledge in this subject area.
