 Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I split this subscription with my colleague or team? 
    • We love sharing—just not with a CE subscription! Our system is set up to provide CE certificates only to the individual with a WAFCA account. This means that any colleagues are not be able to receive credits via your account. This subscription is for an individual alone.
  • Do I still have to register for events?
    • Yes! This subscription will set the cost to $0 per event. You still need to sign up to reserve your seat in advance for virtual and in-person events, which enables us to track and manage attendance.
    • Events are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. In some instances, such as in-person events, seating may be limited.
  • How long are the presentations?
    • Many virtual events are 4 hours, and many in-person events are 6 hours. Presentation lengths may vary.
  • After I buy the subscription, how quickly will I have access to the online library of presentations?
    • You will receive an email by the end of the next business day with instructions to access your subscription. 
  • Do the recorded presentations also provide CE credits?
    • Yes! Each recorded presentation includes a short five-question assessment. Upon completion of the recorded lesson and assessment, a certificate will be generated for you to print or save electronically in your files.
  • Will all of the events be available in the library of recorded presentations?
    • No. While many events will be available in the library, recording for library access is not guaranteed and is based on presenter agreements.

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.
