Continuing Education Credits — Continuing Education Units (CEU)
The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) offers traditional* continuing education (CE) credits/units for workshops and training programs completed in the USA and Canada. The FSS is a nonprofit public 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization, established in 1985.
The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized method of quantifying the time spent in the classroom during professional development and training activities.
CEUs provide a record of training for individuals who need to submit proof of their continuing education to employers, unions, professional associations, or licensing agencies. The acquisition of CEUs may be applied to an array of professions to fulfill the educational requirements needed to maintain certification or licensure. The FSS is recognized internationally as the premiere organization for contemporary training in shamanism and shamanic healing. CEUs have been accepted for FSS trainings by associations for RNs, therapists (such as MFT, LMFT), bodyworkers-massage therapists, social workers, hospice workers, and many others.
*ABOUT FSS TRADITIONAL CE CREDITS. The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences. The CEU is in the public domain. Use of the CEU is voluntary and no permission or approval is required by any certifying organization. The Foundation offers CE credits as part of its commitment to providing high-quality, authentic, and effective shamanic training with outstanding and experienced FSS faculty. To obtain FSS traditional CE credits, you must submit your FSS CE Credits Letter to your approval board for your discipline or profession, with the support documentation provided by the FSS, and ask them to accept the FSS credits. If you need to know ahead of time whether FSS traditional CE credits will be accepted by your association, you must consult the approval board for your discipline before you take FSS shamanic training.
