Continuing EducationWhether it's for license or certificate renewal, career development, or to increase job opportunities, the need for continuing education is a very real demand every counseling professional faces. But while the benefits of continuing education are obvious, the cost is high: travel expenses; time away from the office and one's practice; and scheduling conflicts with work and personal priorities. ACA provides affordable, quality continuing education courses at your convenience, presented by experts in a variety of subject areas!
