News and Newsletters
The NTCB no longer requires that members send documentation of CEUs. As long as applicants sign the form being submitted, list courses and CEU awards received and indicate on the re-certification form they will keep proof of course completion and CEU awards for two (2) years, the NTCB is not required to request nor keep on file any supporting physical documentation.
These guidelines have been adopted by The Higher Learning Commission and endorsed by the U.S. DOE. The Natural Therapies Accreditation Commission (NTAC) adopted these guidelines on March 27, 2009.
