Continuing Education Frequently Asked Questions

Will completing this course count towards required CEs needed for my mental health license?

Courses taught in BTS’s MA in Counseling (MAC) program are designed to meet the criteria for continuing education units as defined by Pennsylvania’s State Licensing Boards for Counselors and Psychologists. While the Seminary may seek specific approval for individual courses, any counseling-related course offered by BTS meets the standards set by the licensing boards given that (a) BTS is a regionally accredited graduate institution, and (b) the courses correspond to the scope and practice of counseling and psychology. Of course, prospective attendees are responsible to ensure that the course meets their particular requirements for continuing education.

Will I receive a certificate at the end of the course?

You will receive a certificate of completion of your CE provided that you attend the course in its entirety, complete the online CE Survey, notify the Academic Office that you have completed it (215.368.5000 x111), and provide an address for BTS to mail you a certificate. Most certificates are distributed within one week of the completion of the course.
