  1. I am interested in the 18 hour course, unfortunately I am using my phone… so please answer a few questions for me; what is the price, any classes in April/May and would you know if the CEU’s are accepted by the state of Georgia, thank you for your time and patience.

    • Hi, All information on our course offerings is posted on the website. This includes course tuitions, schedules and all accreditations, recognitions, registrations and approvals. State of Georgia is a government and does not “accept” CEU’s for anything at all. There may be agencies of the state government that may require or accept CEUs. We do not address persona issues of students in chats or public forums. If you have personal questions send them in email to the office. Cheers
