Fulfilling your state’s requirements for continuing education credits can be an extremely daunting task for any health professional, especially counselors and psychologists. Sorting through pages and pages of content can quickly become overwhelming and lead to completing courses that are ultimately unrelated to your own specialized area of work. Why waste your time with courses you aren’t interested in when you could learn a new approach to treating the cases you see every day instead?


This is where we come in — curating personalized continued education options is a large focal point of ours, and something we are well renowned for. We want you to be taking relevant courses for your own specialty — a mental health counseling should be doing continuing education for mental health, have hard time fulfilling LADC license?
