2020 NCFR Conference Continuing Education and Attendance Verification

The National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) is an approved provider of Continuing Education (CE) through its 2020 annual conference.

Verification of attendance for each session is required in order to earn CE credit hours. Only sessions identified as approved qualify for CE credit hours. Organizational approval and CE credit hours for each session are indicated on the CE verification form.

  • NBCC CE Verification: NCFR is an approved provider of continuing education for NBCC, the National Board for Certified Counselors. The 2020 conference is approved for up to 85 NBCC credit hours. Add NBCC CE Verification to your conference registration at $25 for NCFR members and $50 for nonmembers.

    Most U.S. states accept NBCC credit for licensure requirements for marriage and family therapists. For information on specific state requirements, please consult your state’s licensing board.

  • Verification of Conference Attendance (for any attendee, including CFLEs): Add Verification of Conference Attendance to your conference registration if you would like to have your conference attendance verified. $25 for NCFR members, $50 for nonmembers.

    This option is available to Certified Family Life Educators (CFLEs) if desired for their own records; NCFR does not require CFLEs to submit CE verification. CFLEs can earn up to 107 credit hours.

    A list of all sessions approved for CE credit hours is posted at the bottom of this page.
