Continuing Education for Licensed Psychologists, Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists


Please see below for current Continuing Education approval information categorized by license type and presentation format. We will keep this page updated with any new information as it is announced by the various licensing boards.

  • Georgia Clinicians: The Knowledge Tree (TKT) is located in Georgia, so the information at the top of this page is specific to therapists with a Georgia license.
  • Licensed in another state? If you are licensed in another state, please scroll down to the yellow highlighted section below.

Georgia Psychologists:

  • The Knowledge Tree is a Continuing Education Sponsor Approved (CESA) by APA, so all of our workshops are approved to offer CE hours for Georgia psychologists. All CE hours earned through online webinars, both live "synchronous" and on-demand "asynchronous", will count the same as live in-person for 2021, both Core and Ethics. The Board states it will go back to the pre-COVID rules in 2022.

Georgia Counselors:

  • Live "Synchronous" Core: Per the Georgia Composite Board, all Core CE hours earned through live "synchronous" webinars will count the same as live in-person Core CE hours.
  • Live "Synchronous" Ethics: Per the Georgia Composite Board, all Ethics CE hours earned through live "synchronous" webinars will count the same as live in-person Ethics CE hours.
  • On-Demand "Asynchronous" Core: Per the Georgia Composite Board, Core CE hours are now permitted to be earned through on-demand "asynchronous" webinars, and will count the same as live in-person Core CE hours. Ten asynchronous hours are expressly permitted, and an additional five hours can be used as "independent study" hours. On-demand asynchronous ethics hours are counted as core hours, since ethics hours must be obtained synchronously.
  • On-Demand "Asynchronous" Ethics: Per the Georgia Composite Board, Ethics CE hours are currently NOT permitted to be earned through an "asynchronous" format. Ethics CEU hours must be earned in a "synchronous" format. As TKT receives both Ethics and Core CE hour approval for counselors for ethics workshops, Georgia Counselors can use these workshops as Core CE hours. Ten asynchronous hours are expressly permitted, and an additional five hours can be used as "independent study" hours.

Georgia Social Workers:

  • Live "Synchronous" Core: Per the Georgia Composite Board, all Core CE hours earned through live "synchronous" webinars will count the same as live in-person Core CE hours.
  • Live "Synchronous" Ethics: Per the Georgia Composite Board, all Ethics CE hours earned through live "synchronous" webinars will count the same as live in-person Ethics CE hours.
  • On-Demand "Asynchronous" Core: Per the Georgia Composite Board, Core CE hours are now permitted to be earned through on-demand "asynchronous" webinars, and will count the same as live in-person Core CE hours. Ten asynchronous hours are expressly permitted, and an additional five hours can be used as "independent study" hours. On-demand asynchronous ethics hours are counted as core hours, since ethics hours must be obtained synchronously.
  • On-Demand "Asynchronous" Ethics: Per the Georgia Composite Board, Ethics CE hours are currently NOT permitted to be earned through an "asynchronous" format. Ethics CE hours must be earned in a "synchronous" format. Since TKT has national approval for all workshops through the American Psychological Association (APA), Georgia Social Workers can count these workshops as "Related" hours. Ten asynchronous hours are expressly permitted, and an additional five hours can be used as "independent study" hours.

Licensed in another state?

  • Psychologists: The Knowledge Tree is a Continuing Education Sponsor Approved (CESA) by APA, so all of our workshops should satisfy your CE requirements, but please check your state rules.
  • Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists: Most states will accept CEs for Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists if that workshop has approved status from another state association. Additionally, we have national approval for all our courses through APA. Many states will accept APA-approved continuing education hours, but please check your specific state rules & regulations. We strongly recommend saving the course description and educational objectives, the certificate of completion you receive from the activity, and contact your state board or organization to determine specific filing requirements.
