Featured CALPCC Online Course:
Mental Health Recovery-Oriented Care in California - 45 CE Units

This course was been developed for those with out-of-state degrees, who are applying for licensure as a LPCC or a LMFT in California.

It was developed by a team of members of the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (CALPCC), including university professors and practitioners in the mental health environment.

We hope that our course does more than meet the requirement for California licensure and that our shared knowledge and experience will give you the background, resources and skills that you will need to practice in California’s Recovery-Oriented environment.
