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) :

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. (No recertifications will happen before 2025.)
