How can I obtain continuing education units (CEUs) for the 2022 CCEF National Conference?
This process is not as difficult as you may think, and we are here to help!
Each state board is different in its requirements, each state has various state boards (LPC, LSW, LMHC, etc.), and many state boards are going to an audit system that requires you to provide proof of CEU credits only if you are asked for them. Therefore, CCEF has found it more helpful to provide attendees with the materials they need to apply on their own for CEU credits (or have proof in an audit situation). Most of the attendees we have helped with CEU credits in the past have been able to claim the national conference hours toward their CEU requirements. We want to help you with that too!
A. If you need CEUs for your professional license, you should first contact your board of licensure and answer 4 questions:
- What is the deadline to submit an application for CEUs with my state board? Some state boards require applications to be submitted before the conference begins.
- What material does my board need to process my application? In year’s past, we made available upon request a national conference description, which is a several page document listing out the a) title and description of each session, b) speaker’s name and qualifications, and c) the time schedule for each session. Your board may require this information for a CEU application, or it may not. If you do need a national conference description, or if there is some other document we can try to help you obtain, please reach out to our CEU Administrator, Kellie Sironi, at email@example.com.
- Will my board recognize CCEF as a CEU provider? You must determine if it will approve CCEF as a provider of that content. We have worked with many of you through the years to determine if your State will accept CCEF content. The list below contains information we have compiled. If you do not see your state listed below, you can talk to your board to determine what it needs to recognize CCEF or you can reach out to our CEU Administrator for help (firstname.lastname@example.org). You should update the information below because we cannot guarantee it current as of the time you review it.
- For those who will attend virtually: Will my board approve CEUs for my participation in the national conference via livestream or recorded content if I am not in person at the conference? Each board is different. Some give CEUs for any type of conference material offered; some require the event to be live through streaming or a webinar format.
B. Now that you know what your board allows and what they need, please make sure you are registered for the conference. Then either obtain a 2022 Certificate of Attendance from the CEU table at the conference or print the one attached, and use it to document your participation in each session. You will record the length in minutes of each session that you watched. If you had to leave early, halfway through for example, you will only mark half of the allowed minutes. (Please note the certificate has two columns for tracking total hours, but you should only use one column. The other column is for the administrator to initial. Also, at the end, the form has one row for you to track minutes if your state uses a 50-minute hour and another for those states operating on a 60-minute hour. Please only fill out one column based on the standards of your state.)
C. Once you have completed your 2022 Certificate of Attendance, please have our CEU Administrator sign it in person at the conference or via email at email@example.com.
If you chose to email, we will review the certificates and print, sign, and scan them back to you. If you have any special deadline or if an actual signature (not a scanned one) is required, please make sure to let us know. Otherwise, you can expect to receive back your Certificate of Attendance within 2 weeks of us receiving it.
Not too hard, right?! We will be on site at the conference to help you with any questions you may have!
State CEU Information
PLEASE NOTE: You should confer with your board to see if the information below from your state is current! We cannot guarantee there have not been some changes since the time we gathered this information!
This webpage has been used to update licensees on various state board approvals or denials as they are received, or to provide information for those state boards that do not allow an application for credit to come from someone other than the license holder himself/herself. The term “board” is used to pertain to a board of counseling unless otherwise indicated. For other boards (social work, licensed addictions, etc.) the attendee should contact their specific board to determine the requirements of obtaining credit.
