Jointly sponsored by Commonwealth Educational Seminars, we are very pleased to be offering CE credits for the IFS Online Circle Program.

We are offering 22 credits for each 6-month module of on-line learning.

To receive CE credits you will need to fill out an evaluation at the end of each module (not each month). You will need to participate in the live teleclasses (or listen to the recordings posted on the membership site) as well as watching the supporting training videos. Lastly, you will need to take a test online to receive your certificate.

There is an administrative fee of  $69 per module (22 CEs).

Many states enact licensing requirements for continuing education that override the rules of even a 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.
