Mental health professionals
Certain Lovefraud CE courses provide continuing education credits to mental health professionals. The number of credits, when available, is clearly listed with the course information.
Two types of online training
Please verify that your licensing board accepts credits for online training. Lovefraud CE offers two types of webinars:
- Live Online — the instructor presents the webinar live at a scheduled date and time, while you participate from your computer. The instructor is available to answer questions via chat from you and other learners. This initial webinar is recorded.
- Self Study On Demand — this is a recording of the initial webinar that you take at your convenience. The instructor is not available to answer questions.
Requirements for credits
In order to claim credits, you must complete the entire course,pass the final quiz with a score of at least 80 percent correct and complete an evaluation. You may also be required to include a validation code that was presented during the webinar and affirm your identity.
Please note: webinars are timed, and you cannot advance to the review and quiz until the entire webinar has finished playing. Then you can click the “Mark Complete” button and move forward.
How to claim credits
Some licensing boards limit the number of credit hours you can earn via self study. Please check with your board’s requirements. For example, see New York State requirements for social workers on their website, FAQ #28 and #29.
