CE Requirements For New and Existing CPCS Supervisors

  • ALL workshops must have some variation of the word "Supervision" in the title.  Workshop must be about Clinical Supervision, not employee supervision, addiction supervision, or AAMFT supervision.  
  • No CE Certificate can have more than 20 CE hours shown.  For trainings that are more than one day, a CE certificate should be given for each day to reflect the topic of each day's training.
  • All Ethics hours must be completed in-person, no electronic delivery accepted (per GA Composite Board Rule 135-9) nor any independent study. Workshop must be about Ethics in Supervision, NOT the general Ethics requirement.  These hours will count toward the GA Composite Board requirement of 5 hours.
  • Only 1/3 of CEs can be completed electronically (online, webinar, etc.).  No home-independent study courses are allowed.
    • New Applicants - Option A - 8 CEs, Option B - 4 CEs
    • Recertifications - Option A - 4 CEs, Option B - 2 CEs
  • All CEs must have been completed within the following timelines:
    • New Applicants - CEs must have been completed within the past five (5) years.
    • Recertifications - CEs must have been completed since the last renewal cycle.
  • Copies of the CE Certificates must be included with all applications.

Note:  If you are uncertain if a CE workshop will count toward your requirement, email the CPCS Committee for pre-approval. Include "CPCS CE Pre-Approval Needed" in the subject line of the email so we will be able to spot your request.  This will save you money and us time should your workshop not meet the requirements of the CPCS program.
