New course prepares clinical counselors for supervisory roles

Oct 31, 2019

CCBC has a new option for counselors interested in becoming clinical supervisors. The Clinical Supervision in Human Services Counseling course is for professional counselors who are already certified or licensed and interested in moving into a supervisory role. Offered totally online, this course is a flexible way to fast-track one’s counseling career.

CCBC is the only institution in Maryland that offers the supervisor training course entirely online. This two-credit course has a rolling start date and totals 30 hours of coursework for successful completion. Students may pace themselves by taking the course for the duration of the semester or finish more quickly as their schedule allows. And, the course far exceeds the 18 minimum continuing education hours required by the state of Maryland.

“Colleges and universities are educating more and more students who become licensed counselors these days; but there’s an urgent need to educate professionals to supervise counselors,” said Ted McCadden, CCBC Human Services Counseling Program Coordinator. “Now, for the first time at CCBC, students can take and complete this course exactly when they need it.”

CCBC is the only institution in Maryland accredited by the National Addiction Studies Accreditation Commission, which is the accrediting body of reviewers and addiction treatment professionals in the United States.
