Continuing Education (CEU's) & Recertification


As part of the Indiana Community Health Worker / Certified Recovery Specialist Training Program’s annual Continuing Education requirements, each CHW or CHW / CRS must complete a total of 14 hours of continuing education credits each year to maintain certification.  If these credits are not earned, certification will expire.

Fiscal Year 8: All 14 CEUs must be completed between July 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017



What counts for CEUs?

  • Webinars / Online Courses     
  • Annual CHW/CRS Spring Conference
  • CHW and CHW/CRS Site Visits     
  • Mental Health / Addiction Clinical Trainings offered by an employer   
  • Conference attendance at NAMI, Key Consumer or MHAI events   
  • Peer Recovery Support Trainings (not limited to Indiana) 
  • Community Health Worker Trainings / Conferences 
  • Trainings in Primary Health Care and Chronic Health Conditions 
  • College Coursework related to Mental Health, Addictions and Primary Health Care

 

 How do I submit my CEUs?

  • If you completed an online training/ watched a webinar, please fill out and submit the  Webinar Evaluation Form.pdf  (1 hour of content = 1 CEU). ASPIN will still award CEUs for webinars that say no CEUs are available. 
  • If you are taking relevant college courses, please submit a copy of your  unofficial transcript to ASPIN. Course must be completed within current fiscal year to count. (1 credit hour = 1 CEU)
