CPCS Changes Effective October 1, 2023

The requirements to obtain your CPCS have changed.  Here is a list of the changes as we understand it:

1)  You MUST have your Georgia LPC for 3 years, no matter what degree you have, to be       eligible to obtain your CPCS. (** Exemptions **)

2)  All trainings to get your CPCS MUST be from the same trainer.

3)  Effective Oct. 1, 2023, you must complete 5 workshops of 6 CEs (30 CEs total) to get your CPCS as follows (For trainings completed before Oct. 1, 2023, CCALP will accept 4 workshops on applications prior to Jan. 1, 2024) :

  • Laying the Foundation of Becoming A Supervisor

  • Documentation and the Models of Supervision

  • Legal and Ethics Issues In Supervision

  • Applications and Principles of Supervision

  • Telesupervision: Documentation, Technology, and Business Issues

NO CEs taken before your eligibility date will be accepted for your CPCS

4)  It is highly recommended to have 1 year of supervision-of-supervision by a LPCA Approved supervisor.

5)  Pass the Application Exam (85%).


1)  You will now renew your CPCS on your anniversary date every 3 years, not in the               same cycle as your license.  You can find the date on your LPCA profile or in your             CCALP profile.

(The CCALP Supervision Committee sent an email on Feb. 2, 2024 stating    "CPCS Recertification is set to reopen July 1, 2024.  If your CPCS will need to recertify prior to July 1st, 2024, we will reach out to these certified professionals individually to process their recertification.")

2)  Recertification will require 12 CEs in the following areas:

  • Clinical Supervision Ethics, Rules, Laws and HIPAA (6) (REQUIRED)

Choose one of the following:​

  • Clinical Supervision: Documentation, Telesupervision, and Methods (6)

  • Problematic Clinical Supervision Experiences and Cases (6)

3)   Pass the Recertification Exam (85%).
