Alaska-licensed mental health counselors have a biennial license renewal with an October 31st deadline in odd years. Forty (40) hours of continuing education are required in order to renew a license. Of the forty hours, not more than half of the total hours are allowed from home study. The board accepts APA and NBCC approval of continuing education credits.
The pursuit of continuing education assures the best possible standards for the mental health counseling profession. All licensees are required to participate in continuing education as a licensing condition.
Professional Development Resources is an NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP #5590) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements. The ACEP solely is responsible for all aspects of the program.
