MMCEP LMHC Consumer CE Guidelines

Retroactive Approval of Continuing Education Events

When an LMHC attends a CE event that has not been previously approved by MMCEP, NBCC, ACA or AMHCA, as required by the Allied Board of Mental Health and Human Service Professions,  approval may be obtained retroactively by meeting the criteria for approval outlined in the MMCEP LMHC Consumer Guidelines and the CMR 262 Regulations for LMHCs). With Retroactive Approval,  the CEs can be applied to the CE requirement to renew a license.

MMCEP, through its administrator and advisory committee, developed continuing education(CE)  guidelines for LMHC consumers,  as well as an approval process for individuals seeking retroactive approval of their CE activities that have not been previously approved by NBCC, ACA, AMHCA or MMCEP.

MMCEP LMHC Consumer CE Guidelines are availabe for download.

  • Once you download the guidelines, fill out the “Retroactive Certification Form, LMHC-4” and submit it to MaMHCA via USPS with the appropriate fee (there is a charge for processing and review of the application)
  • In a license renewal year, there is an increased processing fee after November 1.
