Memberships, Course Approvals, CEUs and Certification Options

CASI is proud to possess the following approvals, pre-approvals and memberships and to be able to offer continuing education unit credits. Our mission is professional development. CASI programs are not to be intended as vocational, that is, providing all training required to prepare someone for providing professional services within any field. We are pleased to help contribute to professional skills development and upgrading with solid science-based educational programs. Part of how we help is by providing the following credits.

Please note: Our new course structure is basically divided versions of the previous larger courses as you will see listed below. In the interim, while we get the new courses as they are named and numbered now, the new courses accumulate to satisfy the older courses and the CEUs can be provided either way.
