Important: Please review the following policy before submitting your request form and materials.
In order to offer NBCC hours for a continuing education program, members should collaborate with the Continuing Education Taskforce on the design and implementation of events.
For all programs planned in collaboration with ACPE, materials should be submitted to ACPE’s Membership Engagement and Continuing Education Coordinator for review no later than 60 days prior to the event in order to offer NBCC hours.
All events offering CE credit will be asked to charge a minimum of $15 per attendee requesting CE certificates. ACPE staff and the Psychotherapy Commission will collaborate with members involved in program planning to determine additional member and non-member event rates.
If materials are submitted for review later than
60 days prior
to the event, a
“rush fee” of $100
should also be submitted.
NBCC hours cannot be offered through ACPE for any event whose materials are submitted for review less than 30 days prior to the event.
If a continuing education event is planned independently of the ACPE Psychotherapy Commission, this is considered a co-sponsorship event according to NBCC policy.
Should a member wish to offer credit hours through ACPE at an event sponsored by their center, specified program materials need to be submitted
four months prior
to the date of the event with a check for $325. This fee is required to cover NBCC’s co-sponsorship fee as well as the time needed to submit the additional co-sponsorship application to NBCC.
ACPE is an NBCC Approved Continuing Education Provider™, ACEP No. 7004, and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. ACPE solely is responsible for all aspects of the program, including the awarding of NBCC credit.
