The AACC is a sponsor of this training curriculum and a National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC #5627) Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEPTM). The AACC may award NBCC approved clock hours for events or programs that meet NBCC requirements. The AACC maintains responsibility for the content of this training curriculum, which also meets the qualifications for continuing education credit for MFTs and/or LCSWs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Science (#3552).

The AACC offers continuing education credit for play therapists through the Association for Play Therapy (APT Approved Provider #14-373), so long as the training element is specifically applicable to the practice of play therapy.

The AACC (ASWB#1400), is approved as a provider for social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), through the Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. The AACC maintains responsibility for the program. ASWB Approval Period: 9/6/2017 – 9/6/2020. Social workers should contact their individual regulatory board to review current continuing education credits. Sessions that are less than 50 minutes in instruction will not be accepted by ACE towards continuing education credits.

The AACC is approved by the NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals (#166470), as an Approved Education Provider and is recognized as meeting nationally approved standards of education developed for the addiction/substance use disorders in the counseling profession. CE contact hours that are provided will be accepted toward national credentialing by NAADAC and many of the individual state licensing and certification bodies, as well.
