Continuing Education Information

Course Cluster B

Please check each individual course offering for available professional continuing education credits. Each offering can vary. This page only applies to course offerings that have a direct link to this page. We have different continuing education pages and approvals for different courses and conferences. You must check each individual offering. Thank you.

All participants can request a Certificate of Attendance documenting hours of participation in their course and available professional continuing education credits. Please see the individual course page for the continuing education and certificate fee. 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.

The course content is focused on a specific product or service (DIRFloortime®) and there will be no mention of other products or services. ICDL does not receive any commercial support for the DIRFloortime certificate courses. If any commercial support is provided for a conference or event, it will be disclosed on the promotional material or webpage for that specific event.

Participants seeking professional continuing education credits must attend in-person for the full length of the course during the scheduled time in order to received professional continuing education credits. If the course is a live online course participants must log in individually to the online classroom, following the instructions provided by ICDL and with their camera on, so there is a record of each participant's attendance individually (if participants join in a room with a group, each participant must still log in on their own device so ICDL can see each participant and verify each individuals log in and log out of the online classroom).

ICDL has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6733. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. ICDL is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs. DIR 101, 201, 202, 203, and 204 are all available for NBCC continuing education credits. The number of CEUs for NBCC are based on the number of "seat" hours for the course. In other words, the number of actual instruction hours. For example, DIR 101 is 12 and DIR 201, 202, and 203 are all 28.

Select DIR courses are approved for the Illinois Early Intervention Training Program. Please check the Illinois Early Intervention Training website for currently approved courses. ICDL must apply for each specific class. If you are an IL EI professional that is interested in a course not listed, please e-mail to inquire.

Physical Therapists

ICDL can apply with US state physical therapy boards for specific courses. The courses that have this CE page are approved as follows:

  • State of Texas: DIR 101 An Introduction to DIR and DIRFloortime has been approved by the Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for 12.00 CCUs for PTs and PTAs (current approval applies to courses that end before November 5, 2022).

  • The state of Texas has reciprocity with the following states: WA, OR, MT, UT, AZ, CO, ND, NE, OK, IA, MO, AR, LA, MS, TN, KY, OH, WV, VA, NC, GA, NH, DE, ME. Therefore continuing education credits are also granted for professionals who practice in those states. However it is always recommended to check with your local board.

Art Therapists

According to the ATR-BC Recertification Standards, ICDL training programs that are approved by one of the other national continuing education boards listed on this page, may be eligible for Art Therapy continuing education credit. These standards state, "CECs will be accepted for all courses or events that fit in the ATCB Eligible Content Areas and that are presented or approved by any of the following art therapy, mental health, or behavioral sciences entities: state licensing authority, national professional organization, or national credentialing body for continuing education credit." It is the responsibility of each participant to determine if an ICDL program qualifies or not. ICDL is not an approved ATR-BC continuing education provider and as such can not award ATR-BC continuing education credits directly. However, we are approved by organizations like NBCC which may meet the above quoted standard.

music therapists

MT-BCs can claim credits for the course under the Other Continuing Education Opportunities category for recertification. Please refer to the Recertification Manual for additional details

Other Professionals

ICDL is in the process of assessing our continuing education credentials and applying for continuing education credits for additional professionals. Please contact if you have any specific questions.
