Continuing Education Credits
Continuing Education (CE) credits are mandated by US states and professional organizations for members of certain professions as part of a license or certification renewal process. Most states require continuing education as a means of insuring professionals stay current with the latest practices and research in their field. The credits offered by Sounds True are generally valid for counselors, social workers, and psychologists. We do not offer continuing medical education credits.
Sounds True offers unique and interesting content for health and healing professionals, allowing you to earn the credits you need at your own pace. Purchase the course along with the credits, and take the required exams at your convenience.
Products eligible for credits are shown throughout our website with this icon:
If you are unsure whether or not CE credits are available for a Sounds True product that you have purchased previously, please enter the title in the “Search Products” field above, where you will be directed to the full product details including CE credits information if applicable for that program.
Please note that Sounds True CE credits are valid only in the U.S. You may purchase the CE credits separately or together with the course they pertain to. You will earn approximately one CE credit for each contact hour of the course. Please note, if you have already purchased one of these courses, you may be eligible for CE credits without having to repurchase the course.
After purchasing the credits at Sounds True, go to your Sounds True Digital Library, available on the “Your Account” page. Your digital library will contain a link to the Academeca website of R. Cassidy Seminars, which will guide you through the process of earning your credits including an online multiple-choice test.
Once you have taken the course, you can take the required test any number of times over a 12-month period. After you pass the exam, you will be able to print out a certificate of completion as evidence that you completed the course.
For questions about CE credits, please contact our professional continuing education credit partner, R. Cassidy Seminars.
