Continuing Education and CEUs

NCPG Education Committee reviews and approves applications for problem gambling-specific Continuing Education Units (CEU).  The purpose of NCPG CEUs is so educational providers and attendees have confidence that an approved conference/training has:

  1. Educational goals and objectives that demonstrate that our programs will increase specific or general problem gambling knowledge among program trainees and/or make relevant their area of expertise to the field of problem gambling.
  2. Instructional design that promotes learning about problem gambling.
  3. Evidence of successful completion and an evaluation form for each trainee.
  4. Instructors whose credentials and qualifications demonstrate possession of expertise in problem gambling.

Individuals who seek gambling-specific CEUs should contact the Board and/or Certifying body to ensure they accept NCPG CEUs.

For first-time applicants, the initial CEU Application is available here.

For returning applicants, the renewal application is available here.

Please contact Vicki Linton (vickil@ncpgambling.org) with any questions or comments.
