Participant Recertification Requirements:

In order to meet recertification requirements, you must attend all training modules in their entirety. You must also respond to a minimum of 75% of questions asked throughout each 4-hour segment. Participant attention will also be closely monitored. A participant who intentionally logs off or stops paying attention during the class may be disqualified from earning NCI recertification CEUs.

The class should be taken on a desktop PC, Mac, Laptop, or large tablet to ensure you can properly view the presentation slides and the instructor.

Important Notice about CEUs for State Licensing, NATE and BPI Recertifications

These classes are approved for NATE CEUs. We are in the process of requesting the classes qualify for Continuing Education for BPI and state licensing, but due to the current pandemic, it is taking longer than usual for responses from these organizations. While we cannot guarantee that the classes will earn state and BPI CEUs, we will do everything we can to make them available as soon as possible and ask that they are made retroactive for training in this new program.
