As of October 2018 Georgia changed regulations regarding licensure supervision. Clinicians must begin the process by submitting a supervision contract. The application begins the process of obtaining 3,000 hours and grants permission to sit for the NCMHCE. While the NCE is still available to take, it will expire resulting in clinicians having to sit for the NCMHCE. This is the national standard for clinical mental health counselors.
After passing the exam, clinicians obtain credentials as a provisionally (associate) professional counselor. Please note, I'm trained as a LPC (licensed professional counselor), however can perform a limited amount of supervision for other disciplines. Clinicians must obtain supervision from a Certified Professional Clinical Supervisor (CPCS). This is a new change in licensure requirements.
Please verify your supervisors credentials prior to entering into a supervision contract.
If you have questions regarding the GA Board regulations & requirement please refer to the website.
