CFLE Continuing Education

The National Council on Family Relations sponsors the Certified Family Life Educator program and provides approval for continuing education credits for applicable educational programs. If your program would be of interest to those who have received the CFLE designation, consider applying for CFLE continuing education credits. Attendees can earn credit for attending your meeting or participating in online courses. The credit can be used as part of their certification renewal.

Get your meeting approved for credit

If you are interested in having your program approved, please complete the application form below to get your meeting approved to offer continuing education credit. Attach a copy of the program or a preliminary outline. Be sure to include a time schedule for each session including breaks, meals, and the total number of presentation minutes.

In order to determine the number of contact hours or CEUs to apply for, simply add up the total number of minutes of presentation time and divided by 60 (one contact hour = 60 minutes. For example, if your workshop is a total of 365 minutes (365 / 60 = approximately 6), it would be approved for six contact hours or six CEUs (one CEU = 10 contact hours). We do not approve fractional hours.

There is no fee for CFLE continuing education approval.

Submission deadline

The form should be submitted to the NCFR office approximately four weeks prior to the event to allow time for the meeting to be promoted as CFLE-approved. Please allow three weeks for review.
