Continuing Education Credits

If you are an LCSW, LMFT, RN, or licensed psychologist, you can earn 14 CE credits for your Compassion Cultivation Training class for a fee of $50, payable to the Spiritual Competency Resource Center (SCRC). It is the sole responsibility of the participant to arrive on time, sign in and out at each class, and submit a separate course evaluation form at the end of the final class. No partial CE credit is available if more than one class is missed.
