Update on Georgia Continuing Education Hours (10/20/2020)


The Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists has approved LIVE WEBINAR trainings (synchronous) to be counted the same as LIVE IN-PERSON trainings from now on (including ETHICS). The Composite Board has also approved ten (10) hours On-Demand (asynchronous) training and an additional five (5) hours may be used for the Independent Study option. On-Demand hours are considered "related hours." For your safety, all of our scheduled CE workshops for the foreseeable future will be available online via Live or On-Demand Webinars. Check back here often for new course offerings, both live and recorded. Please stay safe.
