ADEC Pre-Approval Program Process
ADEC is pre-approving programs to count towards certification contact hours, to ease the approval process for applicants towards Certification in Thanatology. Institutions, organizations or agencies can submit their courses or programs to be listed on the ADEC website as pre-approved for certification or recertification.
If you would like your program to count towards certification contact hours, complete this form and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. ADEC will follow-up regarding payment once the course is accepted. The form can also be mailed to:
Association for Death Education and Counseling
All submissions will be reviewed and approved using the same criteria that are currently used when applicants submit their material for certification or recertification. When an organization or institution is applying for approval of multiple courses or programs, each course or program must be approved separately; only those programs that are pre-approved by ADEC will be covered by the agreement.
Programs that are pre-approved will have permission to use the following language in their marketing and program materials: “The Association for Death Education and Counseling® has deemed this program as counting toward the continuing education requirements for the ADEC CT and FT programs.” Programs may not use the CT or FT logos in any material they prepare or suggest in their materials that ADEC has endorsed or approved their programs. Programs also may not use language implying that their programs prepare people to take the CT exam.
