CERTIFICATION FAQ's

 

How many CEU’s are required for re-certification?
Our requirement for sandtray CEU’s is now 12 hours for every 2 years. Remember that you can have CEU’s from any sandtray trainings. These can be online, as well.

When will training open up again so I can become certified?
All of our TSTA trainers are anxious to be able to train again. We will follow the guidelines recommended for Texas as well as taking in all necessary considerations before beginning training again. Levels 1-4 will need to be face to face.

 

What about gaining some advanced training during the quarantine?
The TSTA Executive Team has decided that for the remainder of this year, 2020, advanced levels in sandtray training may be obtained by online training, if the trainer agrees and is willing to offer training this way. There is no requirement that tele-training is offered by a trainer. It is solely up to them. The TSTA trainer will note that training was obtained via tele-training. This is an option that is limited to this time during social distancing.
