Continuing education is a crucial aspect of professional growth, ensuring that individuals stay current in their field and maintain the highest standards of practice. For many mental and behavioral health professionals, the question often comes up: Where do I find my continuing education requirements? In this article, we'll explore how you can easily navigate through the maze of requirements and discover a convenient solution to meet them.

Finding Your Continuing Education Requirements:

Whether you're a psychologist, social worker, counselor, or therapist, each profession has specific continuing education requirements mandated by approving boards. The first step is to identify the relevant board that oversees your licensure. This information is typically available on the official website of your licensing board.

Tailoring Continuing Education to Your Needs:

Once you've identified your approving board, the next challenge is finding courses that meet their criteria. At AATBS, you can filter courses based on your specific approving board. This feature ensures that the courses you choose are not only relevant to your profession but also approved by the appropriate regulatory body. Start by browsing our full CE catalog here and then select the appropriate board in the navigation panel found on the left side of the window under “Board Approvals”. You can also confirm board approvals on each individual course product page in the “Approvals” section. 

Checking Your License Requirements

Explore your state-specific  license requirements pages for various professions. These pages offer a centralized source of information, allowing you to understand the specific criteria set by your licensing board. Streamline the process of finding and completing your continuing education requirements.
