Continuing Education

Please check each individual course offering for available professional continuing education credits.  Each offering can vary.  We have different continuing education pages and approvals for different courses and conferences.   You must check each individual offering.

Available continuing education varies by course offering. Please check the specific course offering for continuing education information.

In addition to courses offered by ICDL, our course catalog will also display courses licensed by ICDL that use the ICDL curriculum and are fully approved by ICDL to be official DIRFloortime® courses. However, ICDL does not provide CE credits for these courses. These are all clearly marked.  Please contact the provider of any ICDL licensed courses to inquire about CE credits.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance documenting hours of participation in their course and available professional continuing education credits.  Please note that continuing education credit is only provided for direct seat time.  Course preparation including readings, lectures, and mentoring is not included in the CE hour or credit total.
