    • 3 years with a Master's degree
    • 2 years with a Specialist degree
    • 1 year with a Doctoral degree

  • 2 Professional References from Licensed Georgia Clinicians.
  • Please allow up to 45 days from the receipt of your completed application & your payment for the CPCS Committee to complete the review.  You will be emailed once the review is processed.
  • The certification is valid for 2 years and must be recertified by Sept. 30 of even-numbered years (regardless of when the certification was issued). This correlates with the LPC renewal.
