I went to a workshop for psychologists once. Taught by a professor from Harvard who wrote at least two books on the subject. It was interesting. I got 6 continuing credits for taking it. Just the thing to keep my psychologist's license current. But I have (and had) no such license, since I took only Psych 101 and Psych 102 in college about 50 years ago, and none since. But they gave the credits to anyone who took the course, and it never occurred to the administrators that a non-professional would take it. ;-)

I am a legal secretary, not a member of any professional associations, and I have taken a number of mandatory legal education courses to enhance my skills. I don't need the certificate so I just don't take it, but they'd give it to me if I want it. And I know that they know that nonprofessionals take their courses because they have sliding scales of cost based on whether you're a professional or not (and will need the materials).
