Aspira Continuing Education Surges Forward as a Leader in the World of Online CEUs
October 29, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsThere are many types of professions that require the licensees to obtain continuing education units (CEUs) in order to keep their respective licenses active. Without the completion of this requirement, one could find themselves having their license revoked. Each profession and each state has their own rules on how many "CEUs" are expected to be completed in each given renewal period. Each licensee should be fully aware of the quantity of CEUs needed and the time frame in which to complete them. This brings the licensee to the question, "Where do I go to get my CEUs?"
The internet has been a viable source for finding all kinds of "stuff". It can also be a great source for finding the right CEU provider. The problem lies in sifting through the number of search results generated by whatever search engine being used. Just because a website ranks high in the search engine results, doesn't necessarily mean it is the best option. Companies are constantly battling for rankings. There is a company that ranks fairly well for many search terms, but deserves to be highlighted even more. Aspira Continuing Education offers CEUs for MFT continuing education, Social Work continuing education and Professional Counselor continuing education. Aspira stands out for many reasons.
First, let's look at the questions posed in the beginning. "Are they approved in my state for my license?" For the professions of Marriage and Family Therapy, Licensed Social Work, and Professional Counseling Aspira meets this challenge with resounding results. There is a table on their FAQ page that show the reader exactly where they are approved and where they are not. With the table full of marks it is much harder to find where they are not approved than where they are approved.
Second, "Do they offer all the courses I need to renew my license?" Great question to ask. Looking at the course list on the Home page (the section "below the fold") and scanning their course listing page there are ample of courses to fulfill the requirements of the licenses they cater to. Not only do they have the required courses needed for each renewal period, but a wide selection of additional courses that will add to one's continuing education experience.
Third, "Can I even find what I am looking for?" How many times have you pulled up a website from a search result and spent way too much time searching for what you were interested in only to end up backing out of that site and returning to the search result list? Sometimes this may be because the site was irrelevant to what you were searching for, however, most of the time it was probably because the website was so poorly designed that it made it way too difficult to find anything. Aspira's navigation is top notch. Everything is straightforward and easy to find. There are tabs across the top that take the user to all of the appropriate pages and well defined links within each page as well. No wasting time here, which is critical in today's busy, fast-paced world.
Fourth, "Are their rates affordable and reasonable?" This is the brass tax of the matter. What is the cost? It has been said "You get what you pay for." For the most part this is correct. That is why it is a good rule of thumb to never pay the highest amount and at the same time never pay the lowest amount. The highest amount is usually overpriced. The lowest amount is usually stripped of any value and may cost more in the long run in both time and money. Choosing a price more in the middle is usually the best bet. Aspira's CEU pricing fall in this category. There are many offerings charging more with no more value and others charging less with less value. Aspira provides several pricing options that range from just purchasing a few units to a packaged deal for unlimited units over a 12 month period for only $129.99. For someone who needs a lot of CEUs, this is a great deal.
