SPC Launches Continuing Education Website

| January 7, 2010

Regent University's School of Psychology & Counseling's (SPC) Continuing Education Program has experienced an 800 percent increase in enrollments since 2006, according to Program Director Dr. Victoria Lynn Walker. And with the December launch of the new SPC Continuing Education (CE) website, providing online access to CE courses specifically designed to meet professional development needs, the numbers are expected to continue to increase.

Through the website, students, alumni, community members and professionals can earn CE credit to maintain licenses and other certificates.

"Over the last decade, the number of individuals required to complete continuing education requirements to maintain their licensure in their professional fields has grown tremendously," Walker said. "As a result, the demand for high quality continuing education opportunities has grown. A unique feature to Regent SPC's online, on-demand CE courses is that students can complete all course tasks in automated learning modules."

For counselors, social workers and other helping professionals, the CE unit is a nationally recognized noncredit measure of additional training in a specific field. One CE unit is equivalent to 10 hours of study or participation in a career enrichment workshop under qualified direction. Continuing education units enhance professional development and provide a record of learning experiences.

Regent SPC's continuing education initiative brings cutting-edge discussions and lectures by preeminent mental health educators and clinicians on topics related to cultural diversity, professionalism and ethics, clinical practice and spiritual integration. With the launch of the new website, SPC now offers CE classes on campus and online.
