Academy Resources for Life Affirming Specialists


As part of the renewal for your Life Affirming Specialist designation, you are required to earn fourteen hours of continuing education credit at an approved training event, such as an onsite training or Heartbeat's Annual Conference. Heartbeat has made it even easier for you to renew your Life Affirming Specialist designation by offering CEU's for most of our courses and webinars.

This means if you are a Life Affirming Specialist, you can earn enough CEU's for renewal online! Once you've completed a course through Heartbeat Academy, click "Get LAS Credit" when prompted, submit the application, and within 3-5 days you will receive your certificate.


To become a Life Affirming Specialist you can now meet the training requirements through Heartbeat International Academy's new course Life Affirming Specialist Certification. This course offers more than fourteen hours of instruction on key topics anyone involved in Life Affirming ministry should know, including abortion, adoption, peer counseling skills, fetal development, sexual integrity, and (most importantly!) the Biblical basis for why we are Pro-Life. Each course is taught by carefully selected instructors and points to several resources for additional information.

At the conclusion of this training, you will have earned 14 hours of approved LAS credit, and will be able to demonstrate that you have met the LOVE Approach peer counseling training requirement. This means that you'll have met 2/3 of the qualifications for Life Affirming Specialists just with this one course. For a limited time, this course is offered at the introductory rate of $115.95. Heartbeat affiliates and individuals associated with affiliated centers receive an additional discount!
