— Keith Russell
"The Playshop was an incredible happening, and regardless of the experience level we came with we were all embraced equally and encouraged to develop to the next level. During the Playshop we observed people at all levels "modeling" facilitation behaviors, and practiced our own style and techniques--all in a very supportive environment."
Continuing Education Credits
Most VMC trainings currently offer Continuing Education Credits for Music Therapists, Nurses and Teachers.
Music Therapists: Earn 25 credits of continuing education for VMC's 3-day weekend trainings and 45 credits for 6-day trainings. Village Music Circles' courses are approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) for Continuing Music Therapy Education credits. Village Music Circles (Provider #P-062) maintains responsibility for program quality and adherence to CBMT policies and criteria.
VMC will issue a certificate for course completion with CEU credits. The CBMT does not issue these certificates. It is the participant's responsibility to contact CBMT to be sure your credits are applied to your account.
Please Note: We require a minimum of two Music Therapists per training who request CEU credits.
Teachers & Nurses
Teachers and Nurses may register for professional development credits through the independent study practicum at Brandman University Extended Education directly. Students have the opportunity to earn graduate level professional development credit through Brandman University, part of the Chapman University System. The units are graduate elective units designed for professional advancement and are not part of a degree program. Participants may earn 1, 2 or 3 credits by completing readings, reflections, and learning activities based on your experience in the course. It is the responsibility of the participant to seek approval from the appropriate district or college officials before enrolling in this course to satisfy degree, state credential or local school district requirements. These are semester units.
VMC will add a $40 processing fee to all requests for CEUs.
Please notify us of your request for Continuing Education credits upon registering.
