MMCEP Continuing Education Guidelines, Provider Application, and Approval Process
MMCEP, through its administrator and advisory committee, has developed guidelines for LMHC consumers of continuing education who are seeking approval retroactively for their CE activities that are not already approved by NBCC, ACA, or MMCEP.    

MMCEP has also developed an application and approval process for providers of continuing education.

  2. “Provider Guidelines” are free. Learn more about the “Provider Guidelines” to apply for approval of a program you are offering.

MaMHCA, and its agent, MMCEP has been designated by the Board of Allied Mental Health and Human Service Professions to approve sponsors of continuing education for licensed mental health counselors in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for licensure renewal, in accordance with the requirements of 262 CMR 7.00.
