CEU Board Accreditation

Approved Quality Content – Study with Confidence!

All coursework in these ICBCH Approved Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist Certification programs has been approved for professional continuing education CEU / CNE credit by most state and national mental health counseling, social work, chemical dependency, marriage and family and registered nursing Boards, such as NAADAC (National Association for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors), NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors), and the California Board of Registered Nurses, through PeachTree Professional Education, Inc, a leader in professional continuing education since 1994.

If you are a state licensed mental or behavioral healthcare or nursing professional, you may qualify for approved CEU credits, at no additional charge.

If you are not a state licensed professional, what the above information means is simply that the instructor of these courses is a state licensed master’s level psychotherapist with advanced education and training in mental health and behavioral sciences, and the course content has been subjected to rigorous educational standards by respected national counseling regulatory organizations, and found to meet or exceed their requirements for continuing education credit approval for other licensed professionals.

Mental Health Professional CEUs are Pre-Approved for Kansas, Oklahoma, California, Florida and Texas Social Work, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and Chemical Dependency Counselors in most states.

** State of Florida licensed professionals must meet a 50-hour training requirement in order to practice “hypnotherapy” for therapeutic purposes, illness, injury or disease, under Florida Statute Regulations.  READ MORE**

PeachTree Professional Education, Inc is approved to provide continuing education credits for this professional development program by NAADAC, NBCC and many other mental health-related state regulatory boards (social work, professional counseling, marriage and family, psychology, chemical dependency). We are also an approved provider of Nursing CNE by the California Board of Nursing.

See the complete Board CEU Approval list below or Consult your state board directly if you have questions regarding the acceptance of CE credit hours.

Individual Board Rules are subject to change. Each local and national professional board has its own specific Rules and Regulations for Continuing Education Credit Approval and Acceptance – and each state has its own rules and regulations concerning the practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy by licensed or unlicensed professionals.
The approval and acceptance information we provide below pertains only to the acceptance of continuing education credit for licensed professionals as outlined below, and is believed to be accurate at the time of printing. Please Check with your State Regulatory Board if you have questions or concerns about homestudy continuing education credit acceptance not clarified by the information provided below.
While we do our best to stay current with the details of multiple boards in all 50 states, you are ultimately responsible for the acceptance or denial of your license renewal credit hours.

NOTE: Because a discipline in a state is not listed or specified on this page does not mean that these courses will not be accepted for Continuing Education Credit.

Fields with "NO" or left blank above may mean that:

  1. The particular Board does not pre-approve courses - but we likely meet any post-approval standards.
  2. We do not have current information - as we have not yet received word from the Board about pre-approval.
  3. That entity does not accept Independent Home Study Courses at all.
  4. They do not require continuing education at all.
  5. They have their own independent approval process that we have not yet hurdled.

Professional Development 'Specialty Certifications' of any kind are not required nor endorsed by any professional regulatory boards - because Boards only recognize their own issued credentials. However, the Continuing Education courses required to receive these Hypnosis Certifications ARE Approved and/or Accepted by the regulatory entities as detailed above.

A NOTE ON FLORIDA REQUIREMENTS:

The State of Florida requires that for a state licensed professional to practice hypnosis or hypnotherapy for therapeutic purposes, you must first complete a minimum of 50 hours of State Board Approved Coursework in clinical hypnosis practice and theory, either live or via homestudy. Our Basic (20-hour) and Advanced (30-hour) programs are both pre-approved by the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling (Provider #723 exp. 3-31-2011), and when combined, are designed to meet this state requirement.
