Internet Courses

mouse Professional Development Program hours are offered in a Self-Paced Study format through PDP Internet Courses. The Internet courses are adaptations of the specialization courses in psychiatric rehabilitation from the Rehabilitation Counseling Program, which have been modified for online study.

  • You may register at any time and return the test at any time—there are no time requirements at all.
  • To register, each Internet course costs $5.00 per PDP hour (e.g., Internet courses that earn 60 PDP Hours would have a registration cost of $300), plus any required textbooks and readings listed in the course outlines. Mental health consumers and their families are eligible for a 20% discount.
  • Successful completion of the Internet courses earns the designated number of PDP Hours for each course, between 45-60 PDP Hours.
  • Technical support is provided for course navigation, and content support is provided from the Internet course instructors.
  • For continuing education information, refer back to the PDP Hours page.
