California BBS Continuing Education requirements
What courses do I need to be a supervisor?
The BBS requires supervisors of unlicensed MFTs and PCCs to obtain 6 hours of supervision training with each two year license renewal. Supervisors of ASWs are required to have 15 hours of supervision training before the commencement of supervision. The supervisee’s scope of practice determines the appropriate requirement not your license.For example, if you are a LMFT supervising an ASW you will need 15 hours of supervision training.
Can courses be applied to the BBS Law and Ethics requirement?
Yes, several courses at supervisionCEU.com may be used to meet the BBS Law and Ethics requirement. They have a red icon and are clearly labeled on the home page. Licensed therapists must take 6 hours of legal/ethical training with each two year license renewal.
Are supervisionCEU.com courses approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences?
