  1. Greetings. I am interested in continuing my studies in the field of Transpersonal Psychology by taking the on’line courses that you are offering. What is not clear, and I am wondering, is… if a person buys the courses individually and not as Course #11, when the 10 courses are completed does she/he still receive a Certificate of Completion? Thank you in advance for your response. Perry Moscarda, BEd, MAC, CCC

    • Hello Perry, This is Dr Beth Hedva.
      In answer to your question: Yes, you will be eligible for certification if you can provide proof of successful completion of all 10 courses. There is a financial savings to purchase the package of all 10; but you are welcome to sign up for them separately. You can contact the WCEA Customer Service for technical questions. My direct email, should you wish to be in touch with me directly, is
      Thank you, Dr Beth Hedva
