Addendum: Please note: Due to the pandemic, we are currently offering only interactive online training. The Association for Play Therapy (APT) has made an exception to their normal policy of not allowing "contact" CEs for online training through June 30, 2021(provided the participant agrees to complete a test of the material at the end of the training). Please check with the APT for further updates to this policy after June 2021. All of the other certifying bodies we are associated with do allow "contact" hours for online training regardless of the pandemic status. Also, please note that all of our training is now scheduled in half-day blocks of time from 8:40 am to 1:00 pm (either MDT, or MST) consistent with Corrales, New Mexico. This current adaptation means that four (4) continuing education credits are awarded for each 4-hour day.
