Clinical Certification Association
of Licensed Professionals
What does a CPCS do?
The licensing board requires future mental health professionals to have over 100+ hours of clinical supervision in order to become licensed. The Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPCS) is required to be certified.
There is a shortage of trained clinical supervisors which is why our certification so important.

The Clinical Certification Association of Licensed Professionals (CCALP), provides credential holders with a single, secure portal to manage their CE certificates/credentials and their certification applications. CCALP provides a place for licensed professionals to network with other licensed professionals in their field. Most importantly, CCALP provides a trusted resource to stay up to date with any, and all, important changes and updates supervisors will need to know.
The certification for supervisors, called Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS) was introduced in 2015 by the LPCA as "The required credential” for Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisors.
The CPCS Program was developed at the request of the Georgia Licensing board to improve the quality of Clinical Supervisors. The Licensing board requires future Mental Health Professionals to have over 100+ hours of Clinical Supervision in order to become licensed, making the CCALP a needed and important resource for all Mental Health Professional Supervisors. There is a shortage of trained Clinical Supervisors, which is why the Licensing Board asked the organization that started the original Registry List of Approved Supervisors in 2000 to monitor the requirements for, and improve the quality of, the training for Clinical Supervisors.
The program has been moved to the Clinical Certification Association of Licensed Professionals (CCALP) to provide credentialing to other mental health professions under the purview of the Licensing Board. Over 4,500+ credentials have been issued, with many more to come.
