The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) has systematically reviewed CPA’s application to become an NBCC Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP). CPA was granted ACEP status with NBCC for Live Event Delivery Format! We will now be able to review and endorse CPA live-format educational content for NBCC CE Hour eligibility and grant CE credit hours for those programs that meet the criteria outlined in NBCC’s standards. We will also be submitting an application for ACEP Home Study Delivery Format to cover the full spectrum of CPA Continuing Education offerings.
Coupled with our APA Approved Sponsor status, our ACEP status with NBCC is a big step forward in supporting Catholic clinicians in completing Continuing Education for licensure that reflects the interests and values of our members and the organization’s mission. The Board of CPA and the CE Reviewers/Committee are now even better positioned to support members’ licensure needs and promote the educational content generated by the membership.
CE offerings meeting NBCC Standard Criteria will contain the following language and icon:
“Catholic Psychotherapy Association has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 7335. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Catholic Psychotherapy Association is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.”
