What Distinguishes “proof of attendance” from “Certification”?

Upon completion of our courses, students receive “proof of attendance”, which entitles them to the designated credits approved by their association. There’s no need to take an exam to get continued education credits.

In contrast, students have the option to obtain certification by passing our exam. Upon passing all required exams, they’ll receive an SFH certificate that acknowledges they have met all the necessary requirements to become a “Certified Therapist.” Some insurance companies do require certification for coverage.  It is recommended that you verify with your insurance provider to determine their criteria.  

Looking for CEUs only

If you’re solely interested in obtaining CEUs, attending the class will suffice as you’ll be granted credits and digital evidence of attendance.
