IBC Training Series 2021: Essentials in Counseling (live Zoom trainings)

IBC is starting its training series for this next year. Although these trainings are aimed toward professionals just starting out, we welcome anyone who may want to brush up on, expand upon, or perfect their skills in a certain area. The 8-part series will cover a wide variety of topics – each session will have its own registration so you are not obligated to attend all sessions to get credit. Each session will be presented by Sharaine Conner, LISW, IADC and will be held via Zoom. Note that registrations must be completed/paid no later than 24 hours prior to each session. Be sure to test your microphone and cameras prior to each training as IBC staff must be able to both see and hear you throughout the entire training in order to receive credit. All 8 trainings have been approved by Iowa NASW.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - Unlimited Online Hours Extended

The IBC Board of Directors has extended the timeframe allowing for unlimited online hours for recertification until June 30, 2021. The CEU approval fee still needs to be paid for each online or non-approved training you submit for recertification, however those recertifying between January 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021 will only have to pay this fee for a maximum of 3 trainings ($45.00). 

Fee Increase

Effective November 1, 2020, the cost for 2 years of certification will increase from $200 to $220 (rates for MHPSS, PRS, FPSS and CTA will remain at their current amount).  IBC is pleased that we have not had to raise rates in nearly 19 years, and this raise equates to an $0.83/month increase.
