Online Learning (CE)


CCFH offers an online continuing education program to earn CE credits by reading valuable publications by CCFH authors and completing a brief online assessment. Our resilience-oriented, collaborative approach is applied to a broad diversity of couples and families and their stressful life challenges.

This program enables you to learn useful practice information with CE credit at your own pace and convenience. The registration fee includes the reading, assessment, and certificate for CECs.

  1. Select among the readings currently offered for CE credit
  2. Register online, or by fax or phone, with payment to receive readings. Books are sent by mail, articles by e-mail. You will also receive a confirmation email and a link to the online assessment.
  3. After reading, complete the assessment and send to CCFH for CECs. You must get at least 60% correct on your assessment to receive CECs. If you do not pass the first time, you may take it again.

You will receive your certificate for CECs within two weeks of successfully completing the assessment.
