Questions about Out-of-State Licenses

Please see Requirements for Out-of-State Applicants

How can counselors licensed in other states qualify for the LPCC in California?
Beginning January 1, 2016, out-of-state applicants must meet the requirements that went into effect for California residents beginning graduate study on or after August 1, 2012.  While the requirements have increased, the law allows licensed applicants to remediate most deficiencies, while registered as an intern in California.  Please see for details.  

Out-of-state counselors must take an 18-contact-hour continuing education course on California law and ethics and they must pass the examinations required for licensure in California. These examinations are the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination (NCMHCE) and the California LPCC Law and Ethics Exam.
