Professional Education Systems, Inc. offers continuing education seminars for mental health providers, nurses and people working in rehabilitation. Seminar topics vary by year and location, including topics such as cardiac care essentials, rehabilitation of young athletes, and suicide and self-mutilation. Live one- and two-day seminars are offered in locations around the United States, and continuing education credits are available for PESI web-based training and self-study videos.
PESI seminars offered through scheduled video webcasts include discussion among participants and interaction with the instructor. PESI's streaming seminars are available for rent with a 14-day access period. Downloadable seminars are available for purchase and, once downloaded, can be accessed at any time. PESI also offers several subject-focused continuing education cruises each year. Depending on the method of delivery, participants earn either live or self-study continuing education credits.
National agencies, such as the National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors, the American Nurses Credentialing Centers' Commission on Accreditation, and the American Occupational Therapy Association, recognize PESI continuing education credits. While PESI provides certificates of completion to seminar attendees, follow-up with accrediting organizations regarding credit reporting, self-study credits and credit for partial attendance is the responsibility of the participant.
PESI, in operation since 1979, is a non-profit corporation based in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
