How Aspira CE Works
About Us – Aspira Continuing Education makes taking all of your CE/CEUs quick and easy. All course content (except book courses) and exams are available at any time, with or without an account. This allows individuals to browse the courses of interest to make sure they fulfill their specific needs. Once it has been determined that AspiraCE has the course(s) that meet one’s needs, the next step is creating an account. There is no cost to create an account. Just click on the Create An Account link at the bottom of the menu located on the left hand side of each page. Once you have completed your account profile and saved it, you will be taken to your newly formed myCourses page. This page will help you keep track of courses you are interested in, courses you have completed, as well as your purchase history. After your account has been created, you are able to start establishing your own sub-list of courses you are interested in taking. To begin the viewing of AspiraCE’s course list, just click on the Courses link in the menu on the left hand side of each page.
Once you have made your way to the master course list you can filter the courses using the buttons located at the top of the page. You can select your state, profession, and/or a course category (assessment, clinical, law, ethics). If you know the course title, you can also enter that or a keyword in the search bar to help you locate your continuing education course. Once you have located the CE course you want to take, you can add each course to your own sub-list on your myCourses page by clicking on the “Add to myCourses” button just below the description of the course. You can also click on the “View Course Info” button to see a description of the CE course. Once on the Course Description page you can click on the “View Coursework” button and the course content will be pulled up in a separate tab in your browser. You can take as long as you need to read through the course content. Once you have finished reading through the course content you will then want to access the course exam.
The course exam can be accessed at any time. You can access the course exam from the master course list, from the Course Description page, or from your sub-list on your myCourses page. After answering all the questions on the exam you will click on the “Grade My Answers” button at the bottom of the exam. The system will grade the answers and display your exam results immediately after clicking the “Grade My Answers” button. You will be given the opportunity to print out your exam results. After viewing your exam results, you will click on the OK button. You will then be taken to the course evaluation. This is a vital part of the process. It gives you the opportunity to share with us how we are doing regarding the course content, set objectives, format, etc. You will have the opportunity to share with us what we are doing well and in what areas we can improve. We appreciate your feedback.
After completing a CE course, passing the exam, completing the course evaluation, and purchasing the appropriate number of units you will be given access to your certificate(s) of completion. You can print it out then or access it at a later date to print out by going to your myCourses page and clicking on the tab “Aspira Courses I’ve Passed” and clicking on the “Download” button in the far right column. You will need to purchase the number of units that correspond with the number of contact hours for the course(s) you want to complete and/or have already completed. For example if the courses you want to take and/or have already taken add up to 20 hours, you will need to purchase 20 units (which can be done with individual units or with one of our subscription options, or a combination of both). Your certificate will always be available for viewing and printing on our site from your myCourses page at any time after earning it. You may also purchase continuing education units ahead of time from your myCourses page. The best purchasing option will depend on how many contact hours you need to complete for your license application or renewal. Please view AspiraCE’s Pricing page for details on all your purchasing options.
Your myCourses page is your unique page that provides quick access to all your continuing education coursework history, purchase history, as well as links to access all of your account profile information. Regarding your course history you can view information on: continuing education course you are currently taking or plan to take from Aspira Continuing Education; CE/CEU courses already passed using Aspira Continuing Education; and CE/CEU courses completed with other providers.

Our state and national mental health board certifications
Aspira Continuing Education’s courses are approved or accepted by many state boards and national boards for mental health professions and licensed social workers. Many states accept the approval of a national board or the board of a different state (such as California Board of Behavioral Sciences) that governs the same professional licensee (ex. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker from Alabama can use our site for their CE requirements because Aspira has approval from the California BBS which governs LSCWs and the Alabama Board of Social Work Examiners accepts this approval).
