"Approved programs will require that graduates complete ongoing Continuing Education activities as specified and approved by their individual certifying program. NSBTM-approved Continuing Education activities will be the equivalent of 40 hours every four years and must directly enhance the work of a therapeutic musician.  Graduates of NSBTM-accredited programs must be current in their certification program’s CEU requirements to be publicly recognized as a practitioner. Accepted CEUs may include: attendance at NSBTM program conferences, taking program enrichment workshops as well as non-program training and workshops, receiving private music lessons and submitting book reviews, as well as other activities approved by a graduate’s specific program." -Excerpt from the Accreditation Standards for NSBTM training programs

Check with your individual training program for specific CEU eligibility and approval.
