What qualifies as continuing education in the ethics focus area?

In order to be classified in the ethics focus area, the content of the program must convey specific behavior that is related to, preferably, the CRC/CCRC Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors, or, alternatively, the ACA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Appropriate subject matter must relate to rehabilitation counseling and must include one of the following:

  • the counseling relationship
  • confidentiality, privileged communication, and privacy
  • advocacy and accessibility
  • professional responsibility
  • relationships with other professionals
  • forensic and indirect services
  • evaluation, assessment, and interpretation
  • teaching, supervision, and training
  • research and publication
  • technology and distance counseling
  • business practices
How will I know if a workshop, seminar, conference, or in-service training session I attend is considered pre-approved continuing education?

When you complete the activity, the sponsor will provide you with a verification form containing a CRC/CCRC approval number. To receive credit, you must submit this form to CRCC through the CRCC Online Portal. No fee or application is required for pre-approved programs.

Can I get continuing education credit for activities that aren’t pre-approved by CRCC and what fees would be required?

Any continuing education activity that satisfies a focus area described in the CRC/CCRC Criteria for Certification Renewal and Continuing Education Manual can be submitted for approval on a post-attendance basis via the CRCC Online Portal.

If I acquire more than 100 clock hours in a five-year period, may I apply the excess to the next renewal cycle?

No, since continuing education is intended to keep certificants current with emerging trends and technologies, it may be applied ONLY to the current certification cycle.
