The number of credits awarded reflects the time involved in reading the text and taking the test. (A course offering 10 CE credits will take you approximately 10 hours to complete.) A panel of psychologists, social workers, and mental health counselors field-test all of our courses to determine the average number of hours involved in completing the work.
After you submit your answers, score a minimum of 80%, and complete an evaluation, your documentation of completion will be ready to print.
If you order through the mail, phone or fax and prefer to mail in your answers, a certificate will be sent to you promptly.
If you score less than 80%, you may retake the test one time without charge. (Subsequent retakes will be $25 each.)
There is no charge for replacement of your documentation of completion. We maintain records of all completed courses. If you have completed your test online, you may print a duplicate certificate at any time by accessing your "Order History" under My Account
