Continuing Education for Ohio Professional Counselors

CE requirements for OH counselors (LPC, LPC-S, LPCC, LPCC-S):

  • 30 clock hours of CE every 2 years, including 3 hours of ethics
  • LPCC-S and LPC-S holding the supervising designation must also include 3 hours of supervisory training in addition to ethics
  • Board accepts 15 hours of online training for counselors, but courses must be pre-approved by the Board

CE Approvals: The Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage and Family Therapist Board requires that each CE course be pre-approved individually for approval. Therefore, courses are not available for OH counselors at this time. After completing a course, counselors may request post program approval from the Board.
