Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education credits provided through Berkshire AHEC. To receive verification of successful completion of the following credit hours, participants are expected to sign-in and out, attend the entire program and complete all program evaluations. A maximum of two sessions may be missed live (Social Workers, see below) but must be made up (by viewing the recorded webcast on the CMN course website) to still obtain the Certificate of Completion, though CEUs are granted for all workshops completed.

Please note: 20 credits will be awarded at the end of the program to those that are licensed. We are unable to award credits after each individual workshop. All certificates and continuing education credits are awarded within 45 days of the programs last session.
