ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT NOTES:

Licensing Board Renewals. Most state boards accept offerings accredited by national or other state organizations. If your discipline or state is not listed, please check with your professional licensing board to determine whether the accreditations listed are accepted. In many cases, they will be.

Please verify the appropriateness of TBHI training for your needs by contacting your state/provincial board or your state/provincial professional organization. Some state and provincial regulations are in flux, complex and can be confusing. For certificate training or combinations of individual courses: All TBHI core courses are approved for CME and CE hours. However, your state may have limits on how many eLearning hours you can apply to your renewal. Also, different states call it different things. They might refer to online training as online training, eLearning, Internet training, web courses, digital courses, electronic courses, etc. Please check with your state if you are uncertain of their requirements. For webinars, some states require that you attend webinars as a LIVE participant if you seek CME or CE hours. Others allow you to watch the recording on-demand, as long as you complete the course requirements of a post-test and course evaluation. Again, please check with your state if you are uncertain.TBHI does not accept responsibility for confirming your state’s approval of courses. 

Search for your licensing board or association online and find their contact information. If you send them an email with the link to the current page’s URL, you will likely get a written response within 72 hours. That email will give you a document trail and will be helpful if questions arise later.  If you need in-person training, write to us to ask about our speaking schedules for your geographic area.
