Utah Law Recognizes Family Life Educators
SALT LAKE CITY – On March 20, 2018, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed S.B. 54, Marriage and Premarital Counseling and Education Amendments, into law. This amended bill recognizes Family Life Educators certified by a national organization (i.e., NCFR) as an approved provider of premarital counseling and education. NCFR is the only U.S. organization that provides certification for Family Life Educators.
The newly signed bill is a breakthrough for Certified Family Life Educators (CFLEs) nationwide, and provides an example for other states to follow. Raising the national profile of Family Life Education could lead to more employment opportunities for CFLEs.
