The BBS has limited ability to respond to applicants. They advise that an email message will get an answer quicker than a phone message. Do check the BBS website www.bbs.ca.gov for the information that is posted there.

CALPCC representatives have kept in close contact with the BBS and, although we cannot speak for the BBS, we have developed the material on this website, based on the LPCC law, to assist counselors in their preparation for licensure. Do read the information about the LPCC requirements. If you still have questions, these commonly asked questions may be helpful.

Continuing Education

Are there continuing education requirements for LPCCs?
Thirty-six hours of continuing education will be required every two years for LPCCs.  The initial renewal period, which follows the issuance of the initial license, requires only 18 CEUs for renewal.  The 18 units should include 6 hours of Law & Ethics, which is a requirement for every renewal period, and 7 hours of HIV/AIDS, which is an one-time requirement.

Can continuing education units (CEUs) be applied to more than one license?
Yes, as long as the training is appropriate for each license.
