Continuing Education Credits for PCBH Short Courses

CIPC works with a variety of accrediting bodies to provide credits for a broad array of licenses, reflective of the integrated team methods we support and teach.  State licensing boards often vary in what credits they will accept, if your licensure does not seem to be covered or if you have questions, we recommend that you contact your state's board. 

Please note that all requirements must be completed by the end of the course, otherwise we will be unable to submit your transcript for Continuing Education credits. Processing and delivery time can take 6-8 weeks from the last day of the course.

All CE certificates will be emailed to participants.
