CE Guidelines and Registration

Please read the iRest Institute Continuing Education (CE) guidelines below before beginning CE registration.

Pre-register and pay online here at least 2 weeks prior to the event in order to receive one CE Certificate for your primary license (PSY, RN, LCSW, MFT), for a fee of $75.

If you have additional licenses for which you need secondary certificates, you may request them by contacting the iRest Institute Office at events@irest.org for details and instructions for to pay the $25 fee for each additional filing.

The link above to the CE Registration webpage allows you to register and remit payment for professional Continuing Education (CE)* available at Level 1 and 2 iRest Yoga Nidra Trainings (and other iRest Institute events as indicated on individual event webpages) for psychologists (PSY) nationally, as well as LPCs, MFTs, Social Workers, and other health professionals in many states in the U.S., however it is up to each participant to confirm with their state governing bodies if the CE hours of any course meet their state licensure requirements. CE credits are also approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN Provider CEP16887) for licensed nurses in California.

Please do NOT complete the CE registration webpage if you are only needing CEs for Yoga Alliance (YA) or the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). iRest Institute offers CEs for YA and IAYT at no additional charge and no pre-registration is necessary.

Kripalu iRest Training participants can register for PSY, MFT, & RN CEs using the link above. Social Worker CEs will be offered by Kripalu and social workers can register directly through Kripalu.

Attendees requesting professional CE must attend all sessions to receive CE and are responsible for signing in and out of the program as instructed each day. iRest Institute is not responsible for missed hours and cannot grant partial credit.

All Level 1 and 2 Training participants receive a certificate of attendance that lists the number of CEs offered for the training and can be submitted to Yoga Alliance and other agencies that accept a certificate of attendance as verification of CE hours. In addition, Level 1 and Level 2 participants will receive an IAYT-specific attendance certificate should they choose to submit it for IAYT CE credits. All remaining professionals (PSY, MFT, LCSW, RN) who pre-register and submit $75 payment to iRest Institute shall receive an additional certificate from iRest Institute as verified through the Spirituality Competency Resource Center (SCRC) upon completing a CE Evaluation Form at the end of the training.


Note: Attendees requesting professional CE who live outside of California are responsible for contacting their home state licensing organizations to see if there is reciprocity. iRest Institute is not responsible for the decision of licensing boards that lie outside the state of California.
