How Do You Get Your Certificate? Print It? Save It? Email It? Re-download It? Click Here for Details.       

Want to see how our courses and certificates actually work on this website? Then try one or both of our FREE COURSES.  You can earn two FREE CEUs or PDHs, and get two FREE certificates (earning 1 credit hour per certificate). 

One of the two free courses (Course 1B) is a self paced PDF slideshow .... and the other free course (Course 1D) is a 'quiz only' PDF text-style document. Try both, to see how the two different course formats work at CEU By Net.  'Quiz Only' courses are particularly popular.

The other free course (Course 1B) is a self-paced PDF slideshow that is entirely unique.  [In fact, you won't see any of our slide show courses anywhere else.  We at CEU By Net wrote them and copyrighted them.]  

Soon (but not quite yet) you will be able to view ALL of our courses and their quizzes before you decide if you want to enroll in a course - INCLUDING the slideshows!  

How do our quizzes work?MORE ON CERTIFICATES:   You're perhaps wondering how hard it is to take quizzes and earn certificates here on this site.  If so, here's some good information:  

Just print a copy of the quiz before you start the course, and mark your answers on the quiz copy as you move through the materials.  Take your time to work on the course.  There's no rush at our end.  Log out if you want, then log back in later.  Continue reading and marking answers on your quiz copy as you move along. 

Then, when you are ready to take the quiz online, TAKE JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES TO TRANSFER YOUR ANSWERS from your quiz copy to the online quiz.  Then click 'Submit'!  Our automated system instantly grades it and gives you the results online, on your screen. 

A passing score is 75%.  You may take the quiz again immediately, if you don't pass it the first time (although almost everybody does pass it on the first try, because they have been marking answers as they find them in the study document). 

If you want to know more details about how to print, save, email, and re-download your certificates, just read on, below.    


Certificates!  How To!
View it. Print it.

Email it. Save it.

To see what you can do with your certificates, click the links in the box to the left - or click the links that you will find below.  

'How-To' for Certificates:  You Can Print Them Then and There.  And Save Them to Your Computer or a Memory Stick for Later Reference. You Can Re-Download Them At Any Time. You Can Even Email Them to Yourself Or to Someone Else, Directly from Your Screen. It's Very Flexible.  



* How to View and Print Your Continuing Education Certificates?

Upon completion of your quiz(zes) AND the submission of the STATE-REQUIRED Feedback form, we automatically show you a 'Congratulations' message with a BLUE LINK to download your certificate. Just click it once, and then again on the next page where it says "Click HERE to download your certificate".

The certificate will appear on your screen. And you can immediately SAVE IT.  And PRINT IT.  And EMAIL IT.  And RE-DOWNLOAD IT, any time, from any computer.

And If You Don't Have a Printer, We Will Mail or FAX It To You!  

You need to have Adobe Reader or another PDF program in order to print your certificate correctly.  If you need to download the free Adobe Reader, just click here. And if you are using a MAC and are having problems printing your certificate (maybe it's missing your name or other details), there's a simple fix for MAC pdf issues - click go here to access it. 



Here's how to locate and print your certificate if you want to view and print it at a later time: You can re-download these certificates any time.

1. Sign in and you will be on your 'My Home Page' where all your courses are listed.

2. Pick a completed course for which you need a certificate, and click the link.

3.  You'll then be on the 'Study Guides and Quizzes' page for that course.

4. Follow the DOWNLOAD YOUR CERTIFICATE link.   

* AND YOU CAN EVEN EMAIL IT, to yourself or someone else! Read on below!  


Remember that you can download your certificate and print it repeatedly, from any computer at any time. But if for some reason you want to EMAIL it to yourself or someone else, here's how: When your certificate appears on your screen, just email the certificate that you see. 

How to do that?   Depending upon which PDF reader you are using, you would do one of the following:  

(1)  Look for the 'mail icon' (which may be a little 'envelope' on the PDF program's tool bar) and click it, and then choose to 'send the file' or 'send the link' through your email program .... OR 

(2) You may need to click FILE on your tool bar, and then on the drop-down menu, click SEND, and then SEND PAGE or SEND LINK.       


When your certificate appears on the screen, do this:

1. Click FILE on your tool bar, and then on the drop-down list, click 'SAVE' or 'SAVE AS' or 'SAVE A COPY'.  [On some browsers, you don't have to click 'FILE' first;  you will simply see the SAVE A COPY or SAVE AS tabs right there near the top of your browser.]  

2.  The 'file name' should be visible in the file name field; if not, give it a name.

3.  Then save it to a folder on your hard drive, or on a memory stick. THIS IS A PDF FILE TYPE, and you are viewing it and saving it with a PDF Reader like Adobe.

Using this same approach, you may EMAIL the file that you have saved, at any time, to anyone. Or keep it forever, for posterity!   


* IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PRINTER? We can mail it to you by regular US Postal Service; all you have to do is request that we do this. Just email us!

WHO TAKES OUR COURSES to earn CEUs? Aside from the State Licensing Boards for whom we are a certified CE Provider, we are approved by NBCC and EACC and an IC&RC Member Board (TCBAP-TAAP) - and therefore our Continuing Education Certificates are accepted by most states for most AOD and Mental Health licenses

 The information that we have for your State Board is presented there.  But remember, we are also approved or automatically accepted by other State Boards and by national organizations such as NAADAC and EACC.  These credentials are important, too!  Based upon our multiple certifications outside of your state, CEU By Net may be an 'acceptable source' for continuing education. 

For example:  Because we are a certified provider for an IC&RC Member Board (TCBAP-TAAP in Texas), NAADAC automatically accepts our course credits.  And because we are an approved provider for NBCC and for multiple state boards for counselors and social workers, other state boards will automatically accept our CE credits.

AN OVERVIEW OF COURSE 6A: Terrorism and Mass Violence: A Training Manual - 6.5 Credit Hours  This sponsored course takes a clear and unvarnished look at the immediate and long term traumatic impact of mass violence upon victims and survivors, and upon the professionals who come to their aid, in a Training Manual format.  

The first part of the course maintains a focus upon the immediate and long term emotional, physical, behavioral, and cognitive reactions of the victims and survivors to acts of terrorism and mass criminal violence - particularly those events in which the number of dead and injured is massive. Terrorism includes such national tragedies as the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, and the Lockerbie bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. Mass criminal violence includes events such as mass shootings and bombings at schools, movie theaters, and political gatherings.

The second part of the course focuses upon the delivery of effective behavioral health intervention, treatment and support services to victims and survivors in the aftermath of a terrorist attack or mass criminal violence - both immediately in the form of crisis intervention, and over an extended period of time. The reactions of both 'first responders' and those who must continue to lend support in the aftermath are also addressed.

This course is appropriate for all human service providers who are called to provide Crisis Intervention and other therapeutic support services in the event of a mass tragedy.  This course addresses all aspects of intervention, including the cultural,  ethnic, and religious perspectives with adults, children and adolescents, and the elderly - both immediate and long term.  The course explains the differences and the similarities in the reaction of victims and survivors to mass criminal violence vs. natural disasters.   


And here are some Quick Links to PROGRAM AREAS and a few FAQs.  The program areas may have several courses to choose from within the topic.

Read the CE publication and the quiz for free, download it and save it and print it. Then if you want to earn the certificate, pay a small fee and take the quiz to earn a CEU Certificate.

FLEXI-COURSES --- Q: If I purchase a FlexiCourse that earns a total of, say, four certificates (one certificate for each module in Course 10A - totaling 10 credit hours), do I have to earn ALL of the credits/certificates right now - or can I 'save' some of the credits/certificates for later?

A: At CEU by Net when you purchase a FlexiCourse, you can take up to a full year to earn all of your credits and certificates in your course! It's your choice! take the quizzes for the CE credit(s) that you need right now, and get your certificate(s) for those credits - immediately. THEN take up to one full year after you purchase the course to complete the rest of the quizzes, to earn those certificates when you really NEED them.
