Kavod v'Nichum's Gamliel Institute courses meet the qualifications for five (5) hours of continuing education credit for MFTs and LCSWs and five (5) contact hours for RNs, as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences and the California Board of Registered Nursing. Two (2) of these hours may be used for the MFT and LCSW continuing education course requirement in aging and long term care.

The National Association of Jewish Chaplains will provide Continuing Education reporting forms for chaplains completing the courses.
