Changes to the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) Credential Application in 2016

Beginning July 1, 2016, CCE will have made several changes to the ACS credential requirements. CCE’s goal is to encourage safe and effective practice among our credential holders. In order to align with more stringent state counselor licensure standards, CCE will have made the following changes to the ACS application requirements:

  • Mental health experience will increased to five years and 4,000 hours.
  • Alternate entry was eliminated.
  • Supervision training course will increased to 45 clock hours.
  • Continuing education in clinical supervision will increased to 20 clock hours.

Degree, licensure, personal disclosure statement and clinical supervision requirements did not change.

Questions regarding the ACS credential should be directed to CCE at +1.336.482.2856 or via email at
