Earn Continuing Education

There are many opportunities for you to earn the continuing education clock hours necessary to recertify your NCC.

NBCC Approved Continuing Education Providers

NBCC Approved Continuing Education Providers (ACEPs) have completed a thorough review process and shown that their continuing education activities meet NBCC standards, including falling under one of the approved content areas. When you obtain CE clock hours from an ACEP, you know that they have been educated on what qualifies, their programs are relevant to the continuing education of professional counselors, and that they are accountable to NBCC for quality training and customer service.

With ACEPs and approved single programs, you can relax knowing your CE clock hours will qualify when it comes time to recertify your NCC. Search for ACEPs or view a complete list with our approved provider directory.
