SMCBA now offers audio and video self-study MCLE programs!

If you still need more MCLE hours, consider this sweet MCLE deal!

Members and Non-Members can purchase self-study CD’s of our previous Funky Credit Day events, and earn hours of MCLE in all categories.

The full video program is $250 for Members and $285 for Non-Members. Both Members and Non-Members also have the option of purchasing individual sessions; $60 per 1 hour of MCLE credit for Members, and $105 for Non-Members.  To facilitate your study, you will receive the CD audio files and handouts for the sessions you purchase all in one CD.

Everyone can use more credits! Purchase the packet today by contacting us at or at 650.298.4030.
