Where do I get course materials?

  • Journal articles

    For convenience, articles may be accessed online through PsychEdCourses™.  Journal articles available at PsychEdCourses™ are for educational purposes by paid subscribers only, and may not be used for any other purpose.   All materials at PsychEdCourses™ are copyright protected.

Alternatively, required course materials, such as journal articles and texts, may be obtained through a local library.   Libraries are frequently able to acquire materials they do not own through interlibrary loan.

Please note:
It is best to use text editions given in the course Book Information section when preparing for exams.   Matching ISBN and date of publication are your assurance of getting identical materials used in devloping your course.  In addition, publishers frequently issue the same edition of a book with different covers.

  • Exams should be taken at, or as close as possible to, time of purchase.  Please read our refund policies.

How long does it take to get exam results?
PsychEdCourses™ exams are scored and results reported when they are submitted, generally within a few moments, depending on your processor and Internet speeds.  A certificate of successful completion is available to print or save when you receive your report.

What is the cost for each course?

Will earning credits at PsychEdCourses™ qualify me to practice a particular psychotherapeutic technique?

Will my licensure board accept credits earned at PsychEdCourses™?
PsychEdCourses™ has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6407.  Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified.  PsychEdCourses™ is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.

Due to variance among state licensure boards on factors such as total number of online/home study CEU's allowed per renewal period, PsychEdCourses™ cannot guarantee acceptance of CE courses by a specific certification/licensure board.  If in doubt, always check with your state licensure board concerning its current policies for CE approval.   Your state board policies may have been updated since your last renewal period.  Select your state below to go to your state mental health counselor licensure board's website for the most current available information.
