Which CE credits are available?
SPRC is a designated provider of CE credits issued by the following organizations:

However, we do not offer all of these CE credits for each online course. To find out how many CE credits hours and which type(s) of CE credits are offered for a particular course, see below under How many CE credits do you offer for each course?
How do I qualify for CE credits?
If you complete a course, pass the post-test, and answer the participant feedback questions, you will receive a certificate of completion. You will also be eligible to receive CE credits, if they are offered for the specific course you completed.
You are eligible to receive only one certificate of completion for each course. We are unable to provide multiple or annual certificates of completion for any of our courses.

How do I let you know that I want CE credits?
During the registration process, you will be asked whether you want to receive CE credits from NASW, NBCC, or NCHEC. If you do, please indicate accordingly.
If you decide that you want CE credits after you register and create your account, please login and update your account.
NCHEC credits are submitted and posted on a quarterly basis. For NASW and NBCC credits, you can use your completion certificate to verify you have taken a course.
Why is my CHES number not printing on my certificate?
If you are requesting NCHEC credits, your Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) number must be entered in your user profile to appear on the certificate. If you are logged in, you can update your account to include your CHES number.
