Please note: 19.5 credits will be awarded at the end of the program to those that are licensed. We are unable to award credits after each individual session.

Successful Completion Requirements:  Participants are expected to sign-in and out at each session, attend the entire program, and complete all evaluations. Certificates will be distributed to participants by mail 6-8 weeks after the completion of the series.
