November Webinar

Navigating the Licensure Process
Tuesday, November 22 at 1pm ET

About the webinar:

In this session, we will discuss the process and procedures of becoming licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor-Associate and eventually Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. This session will focus on discussing the National Counseling Examination (NCE) and the National Clinical Mental Health Exam (NCMHCE), the application process, the jurisprudence exam, the licensure affidavit, the disclosure statement, the supervision contract, reciprocity, and the Counseling Compact. We will have a conversation about this process, the dos, and don’ts of this process.
