CE's, CEU's, & CE Hours ExplainedAccreditationWisconsin LPC RequirementsCounseling (LPC) BoardsSocial Work Licensing BoardsMarriage and Family Therapy Licensing BoardsPsychology Licensing Boards
Each licensing body has their own way to calculate CE’s; however, the following is considered the national standard for Continuing Education:

“The IACET and U.S. Department of Education task force defined the CEU standard of measurement as:

1 CEU = 10 contact hours of participation in an organized CE/T experience, delivered under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction. CEUs can often be converted into other measurements, such as Professional Development Hours or Continuing Education Credits, depending on the organization and/or regulating body.”(Obtained from https://www.iacet.org/standards/ansi-iacet-2018-1-standard-for-continuing-education-and-training/continuing-education-unit-ceu/about-the-ceu/, 2020)

Sacred Wandering has adopted the IACET’s standard of unit measurement.  If a course states, “26 Hours”, it means that is the time we expect you to take to go through the course materials to obtain the necessary information.  26 contact hours / 10 = 2.6 CEU’s.  Most states and other licensing bodies will state how many HOURS are expected to continue licensing.  (See Wisconsin’s requirements below as an example.)

Each student is responsible for contacting their own board or organization for specific continuing education requirements. We will provide course content forms and printed syllabus, as well as course completion certificates to provide your board should you be audited for CE completion. You are ultimately responsible to determine if your licensing board will accept our credits towards your license.

Sacred Wandering’s Accreditation

Sacred Wandering is currently approved for “In-House” continuing education credits; however, we are currently seeking accreditation through NBCC, APA, and NCBTMB to provide continuing education for Counseling and Massage professionals. In order to complete the process, we must have several courses developed and tested, which is our current phase of construction. As an “in-house” provider, our CE’s are accepted by many states – it is, however, up to each clinician to verify the information presented. Once we are approved for accreditation, our prices will reflect the change.

Sacred Wandering is proud that we were once approved by the NCBTMB to provide Continuing Education (Provider Number 451236-10), however, we did not pursued recertification due to a change in focus away from just the massage industry toward the mental health field, as well as the complementary and alternative forms of healing.

As we are in the process of redeveloping many of our in-person classes to bring you the latest information on our courses, we will once again seek accreditation through the NCBTMB to provide ongoing education for professionals from all walks of life.  Additionally, we are adding many more courses from different topics in education including Theology, Mental Health, Personal Wellness, and others.

Wisconsin LPC Requirements

Sacred Wandering is located in the State of Wisconsin.  Fr. Kenneth Nelan is licensed as a professional counselor in the State of Wisconsin, but does not represent the licensing board.  The information below is provided for educational purposes only.  It is up to each clinician to verify the information presented.

((Obtained from https://dsps.wi.gov/Pages/Professions/LPC/CE.aspx, 2020))

NOTE: The administrative code for continuing education, MPSW 19, changed effective 3/1/2015; please review the revised MPSW 19 code.

Continuing education requirements do not apply to the first license renewal as indicated MPSW 19.02 (3).

The Department does not pre-approve continuing education (CE) courses or programs.  If the course or program satisfies the requirements in MPSW 19, it will be accepted toward the professional counselor’s CE license renewal requirements.

Professional counselors are required to successfully complete 30 hours of CE in the first full biennium after they are licensed.  Four (4) of the required 30 credit hours must be in the area of ethics and professional boundaries related to the license holder’s area of practice.

The remainder of the 30 credit hours may be obtained from any CE program approved, sponsored, provided, endorsed or authorized by the following, as long as the hours relate to the license holder’s area of practice:

  • American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) or affiliated divisions
  • Wisconsin Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (WAMFT)
  • National Rehabilitation Counseling Association (ARCA)
  • Wisconsin Rehabilitation Counseling Association (WRCA)
  • National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC)
  • American Counseling Association (ACA)
  • Wisconsin Counseling Association (WCS)
  • Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC)
  • Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB)
  • National Association of Social Workers (NASW) or affiliated chapters
  • Association of Baccalaureate Program Directors (BPD)
  • Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)
  • National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counseling (NAADAC) or affiliated divisions
  • Any continuing education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE)
  • Any continuing education program approved, sponsored, or co-sponsored by a presenter approved by the Committee for the Approval of Continuing Education Sponsors of the American Psychological Association
  • Any educational programs recognized as approved at the time of attendance as “Category I” continuing medical education programs by the Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association (AMA) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)
  • Any course or continuing education program offered by an accredited college or university
  • Any course or continuing education program offered by public or private agencies that provide in-house training and development programs; however, only 15 of the required 30 continuing education hours shall be met through in-house training and development programs that are not approved by an organization identified in MPSW 19.03 (1) (a) through MPSW 19.03 (1) (e)
