Vista Continuing Education


Vista CE has been in business since 2002. Vista was the first mental health continuing education provider to offer online continuing education courses. We have all of the original staff still on board today. We have provided hundreds of thousands of continuing education credits to a variety of mental health and medical professionals.

Vista Continuing Education has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6154. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Vista Continuing Education is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
