Continuing Education Credits — Continuing Education Units (CEU)

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) offers continuing education (CE) credits/units for workshops and training programs. The FSS is 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.

  • Continuing Education (CE) Credit/Contact hour: 50-60 minutes of training
  • Continuing Education Unit (CEU): Ten (10) contact hours/credits

CEUs provide a permanent record of training and continuing education 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 CE CREDITS. FSS is offering traditional CE credits. What this means is that you 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 want to find out ahead of time if FSS CE credits will be accepted by your association, you must consult the approval board for your discipline before you take FSS shamanic training.
