Cost total = $550
Note for NJ Participants: All 30 hour trainings cover the ACS designated content areas (see below). NJ requires that qualified supervisors complete the ACS (click this link for the ACS application). The ACS is a NATIONAL credential given by the CCE. Our trainings provide the required educational component, but there is an additional cost of $110 payable to the CCE to review your completed packet in order to obtain the ACS.

Requirements to obtain the CCEs Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) certificate, if needed.
(The ACS or a 3 hour graduate level course in supervision is required for New Jersey. The ACS is NOT
required for Michigan. Michigan only requires 30 hours of clinical supervision training
in order for an LPC to be considered a qualified supervisor.
There are multiple steps necessary required by the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) for standard entry to Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) certification. This NBCC approved 30 hour clinical supervision conference is just one component. Other components include:
  1. A) A graduate course in clinical supervision, OR B) A total of 30 contact hours of workshop training in clinical supervision;
  2. A masterís degree or higher in a mental health related field - application requires a submission of your transcript(s);
  3. Current status as one of the following: (a) NCC, (b) Licensed or Certified Mental Health Provider, or (c) Licensed or Certified Clinical Supervisor;
  4. Three years experience post masters (not post LPC, post masters); 1,500 hours counts as 1 year. Please Note: The LPC regulations require 3,000 hours post LPC in order to be eligible to start supervising others 13:34-10.2;
  5. Documentation of a minimum of 100 hours of clinical supervision of mental health services provided to supervisees (these hours can either be individual or group supervision and supervision of graduated students counts towards the 100 hours). An endorser has to verify your 100 hours of supervision (the frequency of meeting with this endorser/supervisor is not defined by either the CCE (ACS) or by the NJ DCA Committee. NOTE: The NJ DCA Committee will not accept your application to supervise an LAC if you do not already have your ACS (or 3 graduate credits in clinical supervision). If you have not already acquired 100 hours of supervising others, you have to gain your 100 hours with a supervisee other than an LAC (such as an unlicensed professional, a master's level student intern, or another LPC).
  6. A professional disclosure statement (an 11 part statement and self-evaluation, please see the ACS packet for details); and
  7. Completion and submission of the ACS application packet along with the fee to the CCE for $110.00. Please Note: Advanced Counselor Training is not associated with the CCE; we provide clinical supervision training that is accepted by the CCE as we are NBCC approved and covers the required areas needed by the Center for Counseling & Education.
These requirements for obtaining the ACS through the standard entry can also be found by clicking here (ACS application), as well as the eligibility requirements for alternate entry to the ACS certification. To see if you qualify for the alternate entry to obtain the ACS, go to the ACS application, page 6.

Additional Information Regarding the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) Certificate
This clinical supervision conference has been arranged by Advanced Counselor Training to help participants in obtaining the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) certification from NBCC/CCE. Participants are ultimately responsible for doing what is necessary to satisfy all the NBCC/CCE requirements to obtain their ACS, and participants are ultimately responsible to follow the Professional Counselor Examiners Committee of the State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners Standards necessary for being considered a "qualified supervisor". Please see our Supervision FAQ for important pieces of these regulations that pertain specifically to clinical supervision.

  7. Group supervision

  2. The ACS can participate in workshops, seminars, or in-service training that involves clinical supervision.
  3. A certificate of completion is an acceptable form of verification.
  4. The cost of recertification is $35 per year to the CCE and the certificate renews every 5 years. Within that 5 year cycle you have to receive your 18 hours of clinical supervision workshop training and submit proof of the continuing education to the CCE.
