CE Credits

Type of Credit Available:

  • CE credit for psychologists

The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

  • ACBS will be applying for CEs for BCBAs


Certificate with Number of Hours Attended

As an alternative to a CE certificate, some credentialing agencies (please check with yours) may accept a certificate with the number of hours attended. This requires that an individual verifies their attendance by signing in and out of each session that they attend during the event. The cost for this type of certificate is $25.

Not sure if you need CEs?

Check with your licensing agency, and/or sign in/out on the yellow sheets provided, and you can determine your eligibility immediately after the event (still adhering to the evaluation deadlines mentioned above). If you do not scan or sign in/out, or complete necessary evaluations by the deadline, that cannot be “corrected” later.

Information about the CE Process

CEs or certificates with the number of hours attended are available for a one-time fee for the entire event.

CE rules require that we only issue credits to those who attend the entire session. Those arriving more than 15 minutes late or leaving before the entire session is completed will not receive CE credits.

Evaluations will be available, but are not required to earn CE credits.


A $75 fee will be required to earn CEs for psychologists or BCBAs. If you attend either a pre-conference workshop, the World Conference, or both, only $75 is due. If you register for multiple events separately, please only pay the fee one time. This fee is non-refundable (unless you cancel your registration in its entirety before the cancellation deadline). Attendance verification (sign in/out) and evaluations also may be required.

The cost for a certificate indicating only the number of contact hours (not a CE certificate) is $25.

Refunds & Grievance Policies: Participants may direct any questions or complaints to ACBS Executive Director Emily Rodrigues,, or through the Contact Us link on this website.

  • CEs are only available for events that qualify as workshops, symposia, invited lecture, panel discussion, or plenary sessions. Poster sessions, IGNITE sessions, sessions shorter than 1 hour, Chapter/SIG/Committee meetings, and some other specialty sessions do NOT qualify for Continuing Education credit.
  • (Note: CE credits are only available for those registered as a professional. You may not earn CE credits with a student registration.)  

*If you would like a different CE type in a future year from what is listed above, please contact ACBS staff via the "contact us" link on the website to provide feedback. The ACBS Conference Strategy Committee determines the final CEs offered each year based on need and relevance to the anticipated conference attendees in each location.  In addition to the time and cost it takes to submit a CE application, a long lead time is sometimes needed to collect the required information.  (Some reporting requirements are so unique that they must be built into the presenter submission forms in October, the year prior to the conference.)
