Certificate Programs

As the field of counseling grows, it also becomes more specialized.  We recognize the need for clinicians to have access to advanced training, not only to provide the highest quality of care, but also to maintain an edge in the job market.  We have a variety of certificate programs available, and are in the process of adding more. The specialty certificate programs combine a series of unique, specialized classes to provide the necessary training to work with a particular population or disorder.  (Note: Even though the classes in the certificate tracks are not in our unlimited CEU menu, you will earn CEUs that you can apply toward your license).  Remember to make sure your state accepts our online training.  AllCEUs is a NAADAC approved education provider and approved by multiple state licensing boards.
