Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education credits are provided through Berkshire AHEC. A maximum of two sessions may be missed live but must be made up via the on-demand recorded webcast in order to still obtain a Certificate of Completion (Social Workers, see below). 

Please note: 20 CECs will be awarded at the end of the program. We are unable to award credits after each individual workshop.

Successful Completion Requirements:  Participants are expected to sign-in and out at each session, attend the entire program, and complete all evaluations. Certificates will be distributed to participants by mail 6-8 weeks after the completion of the series.
