NetCE has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6361. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. NetCE is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.

Continuing Education (CE) credits for psychologists are provided through the co-sponsorship of the American Psychological Association (APA) Office of Continuing Education in Psychology (CEP). The APA CEP Office maintains responsibility for the content of the programs.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Board of Mental Health Practice accepts NetCE's courses as long as they are related to the licensee's professional practice.

Continuing Education Requirement

Attention Nebraska Mental Health Practitioners: Executive Order 20-10, license renewal is being deferred for certain license types. Expiration dats for these licenses will now appear as 6/30/2021 on License Lookup unless the license has renewed. Licenses for these license types may continue to defer renewal until the COVID-19 State of Emergency is lifted. Licensees who choose to renew may do so beginning in mid-January 2021. Postcards will be sent to licensees when renewal is available for their license type. Additionally, the Department will not enforce any limit on the number of continuing education hours obtained online or by home study for renewal or reinstatement of any type of license during the State Declaration of Public Health Emergency. If licensees obtained online or home study CE hours during the emergency because in-person courses were not available, the Department will accept those CE hours even if the renewal (expiration date) for that profession takes place after the emergency has ended.
