This form is designed for NBCC Approved CE Providers who are approved for one type of CE and wish to add other type to their approval.
NBCC encourages all ACEPs to use the logo designed especially for NBCC ACEPs. That signals all certified and licensed counselors that they may earn NBCC approved CE clock hours for the events given by ACEPs.
This application is for both CACREP accredited and Non-CACREP accredited graduate level counselor education departments in regionally accredited universities that wish to offer NBCC approved CE hours for their workshops and trainings.
NBCC Approved CE Providers and sponsors of NBCC Approved Single CE Events are responsible for ensuring that all aspects of their CE offerings are in compliance with the policies and procedures published in this document.
NBCC ACEPS must renew their approval each year. The forms are mailed to each ACEP in early March and are due back by April 30 of each year. The forms are also posted on this page in Word for your convenience. Please not NOT use one of the blank forms until you have received your paper form in the mail so you will know which form to select. When submitting your form, fee and any documents required, please send it by ONE method only to avoid being charged twice.
