I am having issues finding the test for this and also I thought the January 2018 CEU was called Using Play and Humor in Counseling, thanks

Is there a way to keep track of the deadline for completing CE exam for our courses?

So how do I take the course - Counselor considerations when working with older people? I see where I can take the exam and download the handout but where do I start the course? Or is the handout the course?

I am having the same issues noted below. This is not an improvement on the previous manner of accessing the monthly offering - it is worse, more time consuming, more frustrating; lessens the ability to obtaining the data, education, and credit for same. Also there is no alerts re: accessed/stored monthly offerings - so that we obtain the learning, education, credit that we desire. There is no list of what we have taken and when, to review and track for our credits - and refresh our knowledge.

I did not have any problems finding free CE course: Go to ACA Homepage, drop down "Free CE of the Month" or Professional Development Online for more courses. Easy to download chapter by hitting green tab and print CE certificate after taking exam and submitting. Thank you for free CE!
