Continuing Education Information

Jointly sponsored by Commonwealth Educational Seminars and Trauma Solutions, we are able to offer Continuing Education credit hours for most of our trainings and DVD sets. This includes some of our most popular DARe  DVD sets.  You will be able to take a test online to receive your CE credits and receive your certificate immediately.

Many states enact licensing requirements for continuing education that override the rules of even a national accreditation organization. Please check with your state Licensing Board or accrediting organization for the latest regulations, especially in regards to online CE. Some states have restrictions on the number of hours you may take online. As state boards meet frequently and revise and/or clarify license requirements regularly we always recommend you check with your state board for the most recent information.
