In 2020 and 2021, clinicians have a variety of continuing education options ranging from one- or two-day workshops to resort-based conferences where you can combine learning with leisure!

All educational offerings have continuing education credits available, and all programs include extensive handout and reference materials.

Whether you are looking to obtain or maintain your NCC certification, sharpen your practice skills, or just update your professional knowledge base, there are choices to fit every clinician’s needs.
