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

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.
