Welcome to AllCEUs.com Please view our video site tour. This answers many of our most common questions.

As an educator, mother, wife, program administrator and clinician, I understand the immense demands placed on your time and budget. I created AllCEUs.com to provide you with the most up-to-date information in an easy to access format in order to encourage you to continue learning even after you have received your CEs for the renewal period. In compliance with the regulations of the Florida Certification Board,  and the state of Florida’s Board for Mental Health and Marriage and Family Counseling and Social Work, we are providing the following information:

Mission To provide cost and time effective classes that enable practitioners to stay up-to-date so they can apply current research in their practices. AllCEUs.com was created to provide busy professionals the continuing training needed to keep abreast of new developments in the field. We create 80% of our trainings from current best-practices literature or research from professional journals. By providing the information online, in .mp3 or video format and using adaptive learning quizzes, we not only appeal to a variety of learning styles, but also can meet the demands of organizations and professionals in private practice who cannot afford to take time off to go to conferences. Finally, it is our desire to increase the rate of knowledge dissemination and encourage professionals to translate research to practice.

Target Audience These programs are targeted to licensed mental health professionals, professional and paraprofessional addictions counselors, school counselors and nurses working with persons with mental illness or addictions.

The videos, PowerPoints, outlines and .mp3 files are designed for you to use as study aids, not as replacements for reading the material.

Fees All online material,  quizzes and certificates are included.  A few courses have recommended texts, but those are optional.  Fees are subject to change without notice. Current subscribers may receive coupons via email prior to their renewal. This program provides you with unlimited access to CEs for a flat annual rate. There is a $5 per certificate fee for fixing certificates that have incorrect information because you failed to update your profile, or for us emailing you a copy of your certificate because you failed to save a copy on your computer and your subscription lapsed.   Instructions for updating your profile can be found in the video site tour. The only way information can be added to your certificate and uploaded to CE broker correctly is through an accurate profile. Accounts are periodically audited to ensure people are not sharing accounts. If multiple people have been issued certificates from a single account, it will immediately be shut down and you will be billed at the rate of $8 per credit hour for every CEU not issued to the original subscriber. See “Legal Information” below for more information. While we are very flattered when people choose to re-use our material, you are prohibited from using our presentations in any event in which you are being paid or in which you are providing continuing education credits.  Free community education sessions are fine.  If you wish to use our material for a fee-based class, please contact us.  The fee to purchase a course is $399/credit hour.

Cancellation/Refund Policy You have 2 days after you subscribe to evaluate the site and request a refund. If you have been a member for more than 48 hours, or have taken any quizzes, you automatically forfeit your right to a refund.

Credentials of Instructor(s) All quizzes will be derived from information from printed texts that come from credible sources such as refereed journals, text books and the National Institute of Drug Abuse.

General Information We were founded to provide accessible, affordable CEUs that encourage professionals to stay up to date on current research and best practices.

Contact Person Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes

Funding We are completely self-funded.

Operational Policies and Procedures: All information comes from refereed journals, published best practices and recognized professionals in the field (i.e. Kathryn Zerbe for eating disorders). The tests are compiled by Dr. Snipes who received her doctorate in Counselor Education.

Describe record keeping policies and who will sign the certificates for the participants. Certificates are produced automatically once the participant achieves a score of 80% or better on the course exam. If they are unable to access a printer, they need to send us a written request and a self-addressed stamped envelope and a certificate can be mailed to them. Records are stored on our server. They are backed up every 24-hours on our server and a mirrored server, and a hard copy made every month. All records will be kept for a minimum of 7 years

Ongoing Evaluation: Each course has an evaluation at the end as required by the National Board for Certified Counselors.

Explain how offerings will be revised and need for additional subjects determined. As new information becomes available, old courses will be made inactive and replaced with new. Additionally, topics indicated in the professional journals and by consumer request will be added.

Home Study/Online/Correspondence Courses: Identify the procedures you will use to determine the number of contact hours to be awarded. Continuing education offered solely through written means (e.g., home study courses) is subject to application of the following criteria where the course/article must meet the minimum number of words/questions in order to obtain the stated number of hours. This is determined by the Commission for Rehabilitation Counselor Certification guidelines.

Identify the length of time the participant has to complete the course. Participants login using their username and password. They have an unlimited amount of time to complete the course, but access to the course is governed by the length of their subscription.  Should additional time be needed, participants can resubscribe.  They only receive a certificate if they complete the course exam with a score of 80% or better.

Brief long range plan. To provide affordable access to nurses and counselors to assist them in improving their counseling, assessment and interpersonal skills.

Plan for ongoing evaluation. Through participant feedback, we will determine the preferred journals, preferred learning tools and work to make our site as user-friendly as possible.

We may collect information about your online activities for use in providing you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. This section of our Privacy and Cookie Notice provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.

You may see certain ads on other websites or in your emails based on your visits to our Sites and third-party sites because we participate in advertising networks administered by third-party vendors, such as Google AdWords. Ad networks allow us to target our messaging to users considering demographic data, users’ inferred interests and browsing context. These networks track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The networks use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests, to track your browser across multiple websites, and to build a profile of your web browsing. The information our ad network vendors collect includes information about your visits to websites that participate in the vendors’ advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites. This data collection takes place both on our Sites and on third-party websites that participate in the ad networks. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
