CE Tests approval

Psychotherapy.net offers Continuing Education credits with most of our articles, interviews and videos, at an additional cost. Psychotherapists (Psychologists, Marriage & Family Therapists, Counselors) and other mental health professionals with a variety of levels of experience will benefit from these courses. We are approved for a wide variety of professional associations and boards. See our CE Approvals list  for detailed information about the boards and associations that have approved us.

Home-study and on-line credits

Our Continuing Education tests are approved for home study and online CE Credits. Most associations and boards allow all or part of CE credits to be obtained online or in home study tests.  See our CE Approvals List and check with your board to find out the details.

Purchasing CE Credits for video, articles and interviews

You can purchase the CE Credits directly from the article, interview or video page, or go to our Continuing Education home page and browse our list of CE Tests by type of test and topics.You can order one or more at a time or purchase a Special CE Package for discounts on credits.

Saving with our CE Points Discount Packages

You can save up to 45% per CE  by purchasing our Special CE Points Packages.  Purchase 10, 20 or 40 credits at once, the more you buy, the more you save. Points are valid indefinitely and  you can use them at your own pace and mix and match any type of CE Test that captures your fancy.

Each package gives you 10, 20 or 40 CE points (1CE point= 1 CE Credit= 1 CE hour) that you can redeem at checkout . You simply need to be logged-in to your account and when you select “add to cart” for the CE test of your choice, our system will automatically deduct the number of points from your account and keep track of how many credits you have left

Taking your test

Taking your test is very easy. Just log in to your account which you set up when you made your first order for CE tests. Click on the "CE test" tab and you will see the list of tests you have selected as well as a link to any additional materials you may have to download and study prior to taking the test.
Study the material at your own pace and once you are ready, click on the test title and take your test on-line.  You need a  score of at least 75% to pass (do not worry, if you do not pass the test the first time, you may retake it until you pass for no additional charge).

Printing your Certificate of Completion

Once you have passed your test, you will be able to access and print your Certificate of Completion from your account. Simply go to “CE certificates” tab and select the certificate you want to print. We keep your certificates in your account indefinitely, so you can print them whenever it is convenient to you.

You can use the certificate to complete the CE paperwork required by your board.
Psychotherapy.net does not submit any documentation to licensing boards.

CE tests for groups

To purchase CE tests for a group of students, interns, or counselors please contact us directly. We are glad to arrange this for you, and our tests offer wonderful opportunities for group learning. Please call us at (800) 577-4762, or email us at customerservice@psychotherapy.net.

Purchasing a CE test for a friend or colleague

You can make a purchase for someone else, but it must be ordered in THEIR name and using their email address.  Each order is associated with one email address and password, and that address/password is the user’s access to the online test.  You cannot share your online access with another person because the information printed on your Certificate of Completion is connected with your email address.  If you want to purchase CE for someone else, make a separate order and use their email address in the ordering process.  That way, they can access their test and receive a correct Certificate of Completion when the time comes.


Ordering a CE test for a video I purchased previously

 If you purchase a video and decide later that they want to get CE credits for watching it,  just check the box for the CE test without checking the box for the video you already have.


Psychotherapy.net will provide a 100% refund if you are dissatisfied with the CE products or materials. A request for refund must be made (1) within 60 days of purchase of the CE test, and (2) prior to taking the test post-test. Refunds are not available once you have taken a CE test, whether or not you passed.

Feedback on CE Tests

We want to hear from you and ask that you fill out an online course evaluation before you take your test. Please take a moment to share your thoughts with us. We count on your feedback to provide the best programs that we can.
