Enjoy the Benefits of Online Self-Study Training

  • Study on your schedule: Self-study Digital Seminar online courses can effectively deliver content in a convenient manner for your schedule, 365 days a year. You don't have to worry about travel time or time lost from work. Courses are available in audio or video formats and include handouts. The Digital Seminar  format means that you can watch them streaming at a time of your convenience, or download the course to watch as often as desired. Your course access (license) never expires.
  • Learn from the best: Courses are presented by a wide selection of state, national and international experts. Self-study courses do not include contact with the instructor.
  • CEUs/Contact Hours: Most courses have CEUs (contact hours) including those for New York licensed social workers. Please check each course credit list carefully to ensure it offers the CEUs you require. For NYSED LMSWs, LCSWs, LMHCs, LCATs and LMFTs, only 1/3 of your continuing education hours are permitted to be self-study (no access to the instructor when you are completing the course). CEUs listed will print out on your certificate of completion. Only a limited number of online self-study courses taken after 1/1/17 will include contact hours for New York licensed LMHCs, LCATs and LMFTs.
  • Colleagues can join your course at a reduced price:  'Additional Participant CE' is available on many of our online products.  The cost is $19.99 for a full day and less for a half day training. You can verify that the product offers Additional Participant CE by checking the course details. If Additional Participant CE is offered, you will see it below the price of the event. If it is not listed, the product does not offer Additional Participant CE.  One person must register to take the course at the full price. Additional colleagues can watch the course with you  and obtain their CEU certificate by purchasing  it in the Additional Participant CE catalog. Each additional participant will take the course quiz in their account and then be able to print out their certificate of completion with applicable CEUs. The videos will only be available through the account of the person who purchased the full course. We recommend you choose the most appropriate setting to watch the course as a group, depending on the size of the group- conference room with a screen, computer, projector and Internet access; desktop computer if only 2 or 3 people are watching. The Additional Participant CE can only obtained after the course is completed, but you can purchase it  before the course takes place. You will need to provide the name of the person that purchased the original course when you complete your registration.
