Mental Health and Wellness Counseling – Online LPC Bridge coursework prepares students to apply for licensure only in the state of Texas. Students must assume responsibilities for securing a practicum site(s) and a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S), and maintaining constant communication with the supervisor to meet the LPC-A state licensure pre-requisite requirements.
After completing the LPC supplement courses outlined in the Texas Administrative Code, students seeking licensure as a professional counselor in Texas must:
Pass the National Counselor Exam (NCE) or the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Exam (NCMHC) (NBCC Exams).
Once granted licensure as an LPC Associate, you will accrue the required 3,000 clock hours (1,500 direct counseling) under your board-approved supervisor for application for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
Requirements for licensure vary from state to state. Our online bridge prepares students for licensure ONLY in the state of Texas. We do not imply that our online bridge prepares students for licensure in other states.
