 A Note on WAFCA Webinars

  • Webinars are live virtual learning opportunities designed to be accessed by individuals. Group participation is not encouraged; post-webinar group discussions are a recommended alternative.
  • In order to offer CE credits for these virtual learning opportunities via NBCC, WAFCA verifies attendance using Zoom. Each registrant receives a unique link that confirms their attendance and email address for CE certificates. Link sharing is not permitted, and CE credits are not available for unregistered participants.


For more than 25 years, WAFCA has provided quality, timely continuing education for professionals serving children and families in Wisconsin. Each year, we train more than 1,000 participants including social workers, therapists, counselors, case managers, residential care workers, parenting support aides and in-home support workers on topics ranging from family systems to addiction and trauma.

WAFCA-CE is a trusted resource for continuing education for our member agencies and other behavioral health professionals in counties and in private practice. The Wisconsin Association of Family & Children's Agencies (WAFCA) has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education ProviderTM (ACEP No.6778). Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. WAFCA is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.  

For all WAFCA-CE in-person and virtual webinar trainings, certificates will be issued within 30 days of the event. Click here for more information on continuing education hours, accommodations, program concerns, and confidentiality of participant information.
