The Certification Renewal Form will require 20 CEUs/CMEs of continuing education. Alternatively, if your professional work has been supervised and you have completed a minimum of 2,000 hours of counseling/treatment hours this can satisfy CEU/CME requirements. Documentation from supervisor is required.
AABC now offers 20 hours of online CEUs/CMEs.
