Attention California LCSW, LPCC, LMFT, and LEP: In conformance with the new BBS regulations pertaining to expiration of current BBS CE Provider numbers, CEU By Net's CE Provider number (#4123) expired September 30, 2015.
After September 30, 2015, CEU By Net is approved to provide CE services to BBS licensees through our NBCC ACEP Certification #6338. NBCC is a 'BBS Board-Recognized Approval Agency' for provision of CE to California BBS Licensees. You are therefore secure in purchasing an Annual Subscription from CEU By Net!
PLEASE NOTE: NBCC has informed CE Providers (ACEPs) that effective May 1, 2015, the requirement for earning one (1) hour of NBCC Credit changed: Effective May 1, 2015, 6,000 words of text is required to earn one (1) hour of NBCC CE Credit, instead of the 4,000 words of text which have been historically required by NBCC.
This NBCC policy will NOT affect California AOD Counselors OR other California licensees whose board does not utilize NBCC's criteria for awarding of Credit Hours.
And the new NBCC policy concerning 'how to determine CE Hours' did not affect the number of Credit Hours (CEUs or Contact Hours) which were earned by BBS Licensees through CEU By Net UNTIL October 1, 2015, when our BBS license expired.
Until October 1, 2015, CEU By Net was CERTIFIED BY CALIFORNIA BBS as CE Provider #4123 - for LCSW, LPCC, LMFT, and LEP.
Effective October 1, 2015, BBS ACCEPTS OUR COURSE CREDITS FOR ALL OF THESE LICENSES BECAUSE WE ARE AN NBCC ACEP #6338. We are approved to provide NBCC Credit Hours for ALL of the courses posted on our site.
'Laws and Ethics' courses. Course 2D and Ethics Course 4D and Course 3C and Ethics Course 3D and Ethics 4B. These courses are NOT the same as the Jurisprudence and Ethics requirement required prior to licensure. They will cover the six credits required at each re-licensure, in the area of 'laws and ethics'.
Multiple ALCOHOL AND DRUG (Addiction) courses - ALL online with instant certificates. In addition to our BBS, NBCC, EACC and other certifications, these courses are pre-approved by
- NAADAC because we are a licensed CE provider for Texas Association of Addiction Professionals (a pre-approved NAADAC CE Provider).
- IC&RC because we are a licensed CE provider for Texas Certification Board of Addiction Professionals (an IC&RC Member Board). All branches of the US Military and the federal DOT accept these courses based upon our IC&RC pre-approval.
TRAUMA Intervention Course - Course 6A - 'Mental Health Response to Mass Violence and Terrorism: A Training Manual'.
VETERANS. We offer two 'companion' Courses 5K and 5L which focus upon specific approaches to working effectively with Iraq and Afghanistan VETERANS with PTSD, TBI, SUDs, and anxiety disorders - and their families. Learn why 'coming home' is the hardest part of the war, in Courses 5K and 5L. Learn what to do AND what not to do. It's not the same as working with members of the general public who have these issues.
All of our courses are also EACC PDH approved for CEAPs.
FOR ALCOHOL AND DRUG COUNSELORS ..... NOTE THIS WARNING: We have recently been told that some professional associations for Addiction Professionals in California do not consider CE Providers who have not obtained a CE Provider NUMBER from the given association to be an acceptable source of Continuing Education credit.This conflicts with the current California Statute for acceptable sources of CE, which we have reiterated below. CEU By Net does qualify according to the Statute.
However, we would encourage the Addiction Professional to check with his or her given professional association for 'who is' and 'who is not' approved to provide CE. You might wish to tell your association that CEU By Net is pre-approved to provide Continuing Education by IC&RC and by NAADAC. We do not know if IC&RC and NAADAC CE Providers (such as CEU By Net) are acceptable to your given organization.
Per California statute found here, the requirement for certificate renewal for AOD Counselors is forty (40) hours of continuing education which shall include TAP 21 curriculum, special populations (e.g., including at least aging individuals; individuals with co-occurring disorders (e.g., alcoholism and mental illness); individuals with post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]); individuals with disabilities; diverse populations; individuals with cultural differences, etc.)
We offer a broad array of Substance Abuse and Addiction topics including TAP 21 courses and courses pertaining to special populations.
SPECIAL POPULATIONS include HIV-AIDS patients with personality disorders, children and adolescents with dual diagnosis, adolescents and families with HIV/AIDS, couples with under-the-radar problem drinking issues, anger management treatment for groups, working with LGBT adolescents, Intensive AOD Outpatient for persons with Personality Disorders, working with persons with AIDS in need of Advance Directives counseling, working with aging individuals with serious behavioral and cognitive disorders, working with WAR ZONE VETERANS with PTSD, TBI, and AOD issues, etc..
