Accreditation & Approvals
It is the responsibility of each individual user to understand what his or her state licensing board requires for license renewal, as well as what the licensing board identifies as acceptable for continuing education credit hours. Please contact your board for verification if you are unsure of your continuing education CE requirements, including online and distance learning formats.
Right to Know has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 7181. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Right to Know is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
Here is a LIST of states and our understanding of what each state approves – Right to Know is NOT responsible for the accuracy of this information.
Conflict of Interests
Right to Know is committed to the identification and resolution of potential conflicts of interest in the planning, promotion, delivery, and evaluation of our continuing education. Potential conflicts of interest occur when an individual assumes a professional role in the planning, promotion, delivery, or evaluation of continuing education where personal, professional, legal, financial, or other interests could reasonably be expected to impair his or her objectivity, competence, or effectiveness.
The Program Administrator is responsible to identify, declare, and resolve any potential conflict of interest the Right to Know may have in offering any specific program of continuing education. In the event of a potential conflict of interest, the Program Administrator will assume responsibility to resolve the potential conflict by within 10 days. All professionals participating in the planning of continuing education must identify any potential conflict of interest they may have in the review, selection, development, delivery, or evaluation of courses and disclose the conflict or recuse themselves from any decision-making concerning that course.
When preparing promotional material for continuing education, Right to Know includes information concerning any financial support, including in-kind support, provided by another party. We also inform potential participants of any potential conflicts of interest an instructor. If there is no financial support or any potential conflict of interest or commercial support, we will ensure that is clearly stated in the promotional material.
Course Completion Requirements for CE Credit Hours
To receive continuing education credit hours and your CE certificate from Right to Know you must participate in the course material in its entirety, watch all of the course, read any handouts if applicable, engage with the interactive learning material, pass the end test at an 80% level, and complete the course evaluation. After each section of a course, there is an interactive learning section to accommodate different adult learning styles. This is not graded but you must try and complete the tasks before being able to move on to the next section. After completing all of the sections, you will be required to take a final test. Once you pass at an 80% or higher rate, you must complete a course evaluation. After you complete the course evaluation, you will immediately receive your certificate to print/save for your records. We also email you a copy of the certificate.
Total credit hours offered are based on actual time to watch videos and one hour for 6,000 words of required text. We round down to the closest quarter-hour in determining the credit hours offered. For example, if there is 50 minutes of video time, this will be counted as 0.75 credit hours; and 3,000 words of text is considered 0.50 credit hours. Note that credit hours for required text materials are given only for written materials that provide an opportunity for learning and does not include reference lists, citations, learning assessments, indexes, or program evaluations.
The target audience for Right to Know’s CE courses is mental health professionals with at least an undergraduate degree and credentialing in at least one state. Note there are no standardized definitions for the terms “beginner”, “intermediate”, and “advanced”. This is often determined by the author of the course and may or may not be applicable to an individual user.

Taking a Class
When you log on, click the course you’ve signed up for. There’s an overview of the course and a “Materials” button. If you click on “Materials” there you’ll find handouts for the class.
All classes are divided into short, easy-to-manage, sections. You must start with Section 1. After you watch the video for the section in its entirety, there is an interactive learning section to accommodate different adult learning styles. The interactive sections are not graded but you should try to complete the tasks before moving on to the next section of the course (you may have difficulty interacting with the interactive sections on a mobile phone). Use the “Pause” button if you need to slow things down and read it over a few times. Once you complete the video and review portion for a section, click on “Mark Complete.”
Once you’ve completed the entire course (watched each video for each section of the class and participated in the interactive sections), you will be required to take a final test. We require an 80% pass rate to receive your credit hours. Click to continue once you’ve passed the final test. You must complete a short course evaluation before you receive your certificate. Once the evaluation is complete, you can review any portion of the class at anytime. Click “download” certificate to receive a copy of your certificate.
If you wish to take a course and receive continuing education credit hours, it is $30 per credit hour. So for example, a 1.5-hour course with credit hours has a fee of $45 and a 1.25-hour course with credit hours is $37.50.
If you wish to take a course without continuing education credit hours, it is $14 per credit hour. So a 1.5-hour course has a fee of $21 and a 1.25-hour course is $17.50.
We charge a flat rate of $12 for each of our webinars, which helps to offset the production and video hosting service costs associated with these offerings.
