Why use a Certified Professional
Counselor Supervisor (CPCS)?

Professional Standards of Excellence. Using a CPCS-credentialed supervisor provides the supervise with a supervisor whose education, experience, and ethical guidelines exceed those currently required by the state licensure board, giving future counselors the training to become exceptional Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs).

Ethics Adherence. In addition to following the Code of Ethics required by law, Certified Professional Counselor Supervisors adhere to the CPCS Code of Ethics. These standards exceed the current state licensure requirements.

Continuing Education Requirements. In order to be certified, a supervisor must have a minimum of 24 direct clock hours of approved continuing education (CE) workshops about clinical supervision. Trainers must meet the continuing education standards established by LPCA of Georgia. In order to renew certification, a process that occurs once every two years, a CPCS must provide proof of at least 12 additional CE hours in clinical supervision workshops.
