Nov 19, 2014
The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) has announced that after January 1, 2022, individuals applying for the National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential must hold their degree from a CACREP accredited counselor education program.

NBCC is an independent credentialing organization based in Greensboro, North Carolina, and the NCC is a voluntary, private certification. Counselors who did not graduate from a CACREP accredited institution who have, or will, receive their NCC before 2022 will continue to be recognized by NBCC after this change occurs.

This decision was made by the NBCC board and formally announced on November 17, 2014, to those holding the NCC and to other organizations such as ACA.
