What do you call it in your part of the world?

Naturopathic Continuing Education (NCE), Certified Education Points (CEP), Professional Education (PE), Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or Continuing Medical Education (CME)… there are a number of names around the world for the same thing when it comes to staying up to date each year. We like to stick with CE.

Continuing Education (CE) and Professional Development requires that you participate, in a meaningful and ongoing manner, in activities that support your practice competence, education in the profession and contribute to your profession.

All regulated health care professionals also have an obligation, to their patients and members of the public, to be well-educated in all areas in which they practice and up to date with the competencies of their chosen profession. Health Masters Live allows you to stay up to date in practice. Learners should confirm with their state board regarding use of CE credit prior to registering for our content.

Personalised certificate

Naturopathic associations and licensing bodies in many countries around the world require naturopathic health practitioners to undertake naturopathic continuing education. You receive a personalised certificate for naturopathic continuing education hours for each course you do with Health Masters Live.

The CE requirements of each country are detailed in the Standards for each profession, published on each Board or Associations website. These detail the number of credits/points/hours practitioners must spend each year on learning activities. Some health professions also provide additional guidelines in their Codes and Guidelines.

It is your responsibility to keep accurate records of all the CE activities in which you participate. We are able to retrieve a lost certificate for you for up to a year after the completion date, no longer. Please make sure you download a copy of your certificate of completion upon successfully completing a course. Keep it in a safe place with all of your other CE activities for future reference. In some states it may be required for proof of CE up to seven years after the course completion.

Preapproved CE

We are a global company and have our events preapproved by many associations around the world. There are many boards/associations that automatically approve CE points if one of the major associations also approves the course. We have not listed them all as there are a vast quantity who do so. 

If you are unsure, please check with your professional association as to how many points/credits are allocated to Health Masters Live class/study hours.

All Australian associations and boards approve our courses. ANTA 1 point/hour. ANPA 1 point. ATMS 1 or 2 points depending on accreditation level. NHAA 1 recorded, 2 live.

For the US and Canada, we get approvals via CONO which means that many other associations in the US and Canada also automatically approve our courses. You can now also use any Health Masters Live course for CNDA as long as it lines up with your goals. Many US accreditation bodies do not approve a course if a course is released prior to approval. As the approval process can take months, this is often outside our abilities as we are completely online. For a live class our presenters often get their final notes to us just days before the class. So approval under these rules, getting approval is impossible. Also, OBNM for example won't give us prior approval for a course unless we have a record of attendance by an Oregon licensed ND. So not only are we unable to get approval for a course before it is released, we must have proof that an Oregon licenced ND will attend which is impossible when we haven't released the course yet. Note that any licensed Oregon ND that attends our program after it has been released may themselves submit an application for approval for their hours of attending the program. If the Board approves that licensee application, the program will be posted as approved on their website and included in their database as approved for licensee renewal. 


Many recent courses may be still waiting on approvals to come through from CONO. You can see where we are up to via this spreadsheet.

Note: Licensed and registered naturopathic doctors in the US must fulfil state-mandated continuing education requirements annually and have a specific scope of practice as defined by their state's law. 

General CE

If a class has not been preapproved by your Board you can often submit it to them for approval under the following categories:

Self Directed Learning
Educational activities in this category are those which are conducted individually or are self-managed to extend your practice in Natural Medicine. These may include; learning projects, online educational activities, journal reading, literature reviews and sabbaticals. Furthermore, a maximum of credit hours of self-study may be used towards the CME yearly requirement for most licensed states and territories. The purchase of a class including certificate would prove self-study hours.

Group Learning
Group learning covers activities that are undertaken in company with other learners to enhance your practice in Natural Medicine. Examples of group learning CE include workshops, meetings, journal clubs, grand rounds/lectures and participating in online discussion via social media, forums etc.

Quality Enhancement
Activities in this category are undertaken with the aim of reviewing and improving your practice in Natural Medicine, within an individual, workplace or wider context. A number of meeting types may be considered as quality enhancement as they ultimately improve systems, processes, procedures and patient care. Examples include workplace planning and review, committee attendance, peer reviews, Audit of Practice and being assessed via a Workplace-Based Assessment are all considered to be quality enhancement activities.

Teaching, Research & Educational Development
Activities in this category are related to education in Natural Medicine. This includes a range of activities such as preparing grants, providing overseas aid work and teaching in a University or hospital or clinic setting. Clinical Supervisors and Examiners can count many of their duties towards their CE. This is in recognition that these roles extend the knowledge and skills of both the individual and the broader Natural Medicine community.
