CE Guidelines and Registration

IMPORTANT: Please read all iRest Institute Continuing Education (CE) guidelines below before beginning CE registration.

YA and IAYT CE Credits

*Please do NOT complete CE registration if you are only needing CE credits for Yoga Alliance (YA) or the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). iRest Institute offers CE credits for YA and IAYT at no additional charge and no pre-registration is necessary. A certificate of attendance will be offered to all participants post-event that can be used to submit to YA and IAYT for CE credits.

Continuing Education Registration and Fees

CE credits are only available for eligible events. Eligibility is listed for each event on the event's web page, but at this time is usually limited to our iRest Level 1 and Level 2 Trainings. 

To register for CEs, refer to the link in the confirmation email you received when you registered for the event.

Registration and payment must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the event in order to receive one CE Certificate for your primary license (PSY, RN, LCSW, MFT).

The fee to register for CE credits is $150.

Additional certificates will incur a fee of $25 per additional certificate.

Payment links for CE credits are made available on the Participant Resources Page available after event registration is complete.

Eligible Professional Credentials

Professional Continuing Education (CE) credits, when offered, are available for psychologists (PSY) nationally, California licensed LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFT's, nurses registered by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN Provider CEP16887), and Ohio social workers.

For states other than California, it is up to each participant to confirm with their state governing bodies if the CE credits of any course meet their state licensure requirements. 

Please see important details at the bottom of this page.

Attendance and Completion Requirements

Attendees requesting professional CE credits must attend all sessions to receive CE. At in-person events, participants are responsible for signing in and out of the program as instructed each day. Participants are equally responsible for attending all sessions in full during livestream trainings, where attendance is closely monitored and tracked. iRest Institute is not responsible for missed hours and cannot grant partial credit.

In addition, a CE Evaluation must be completed prior to receiving a CE Certificate. The link to complete the evaluation will be sent via email post-event.

Certificate Details

Completed attendees will receive a unique CE certificate listing the course details and number of CE credits that can be submitted to their credentialing organization.

Unique Events

For the Online iRest Level 1 Training through Yoga International

The link to register and pay for CE credits for the self-paced Online iRest Yoga Training through Yoga International is available within the introductory materials to the course available after course registration. While you may register and pay for CE credits in advance of your completion, you will not be able to receive your CE Certificate until you've completed the course and the CE evaluation you will receive from our staff. Please notify us within two weeks of having completed this self-paced course.

For iRest Trainings at Kripalu

Kripalu iRest Training participants can register for PSY, MFT, & RN CEs using the link above. Social Worker CEs will be offered by Kripalu and social workers can register directly through Kripalu.

Reminder: Attendees requesting professional CE who live outside of California are responsible for contacting their home state licensing organizations to see if there is reciprocity. iRest Institute is not responsible for the decision of licensing boards that lie outside the state of California.

CE credits for psychologists are provided by the Spiritual Competency Academy (SCA) which is co-sponsoring this program. The Spiritual Competency Academy is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Spiritual Competency Academy maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

The California Board of Behavioral Sciences accepts CE credits for LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFT license renewal for programs offered by approved sponsors of CE by the American Psychological Association.

LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFTs, and other mental health professionals from states other than California need to check with their state licensing board as to whether or not they accept programs offered by approved sponsors of CE by the American Psychological Association.

SCA is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN Provider CEP16887) for licensed nurses in California. RNs must retain their certificate of attendance for 4 years after the course concludes.
