Professional Development

One of the benefits of association membership is the availability of INABC endorsed educational opportunities, which typically offer CEUs at no additional cost to members.

These opportunities are usually offered during the course of our scheduled association meetings. Additionally, during the course of many “non meeting months” the association may schedule in-service training opportunities to obtain CEUs, again offered to INABC members at no additional cost.

Please keep in mind, that per 460 IAC, Behavioral Consultants (that already have their Masters Degrees) must obtain ten (10) related CEUs annually to maintain your certification. While INABC offers CEUs as a benefit of membership, it is the responsibility of each individual member to meet this requirement.

Also, take note that the CEU opportunities listed below are guaranteed to be 100% applicable only to the annual State of Indiana requirements for behavioral consultants. Beyond that, for MSW or LCSW specific requirements for instance, please be sure to review details listed at IN.gov — www.in.gov/pla/2632.htm.
