Students who have graduated from CACEP accredited programs within five years of their official conferral date are fast tracked through the certification procedure. These graduates do not need to provide course descriptions with their applications as these programs have already had their coursework evaluated and approved by the Registrar and Certification Committee.
Graduates of CACEP-accredited programs are required to submit their CCC Practicum Form with their application (given that they are applying on Pathway one), but the practicum supervision requirements will only be enforced for graduates who conferred their degree on or after September 1, 2016. Applicants who complete their practicum after September 1, 2016 MUST show a fully qualified supervisor for each practicum placement reported in order for the applicant to be eligible for certification with CCPA.
Current CACEP accredited programs are:
|University||Program||Year of Accreditation||Year of Accreditation Expiry|
|University of British Columbia||M.A. Counselling Psychology||June 2006||November 2016|
|University of British Columbia||M.Ed Counselling Psychology||June 2006||November 2016|
|Acadia University||Master of Education in Counselling||March 2009||March 2019|
|Trinity Western University||M.A. Counselling Psychology||March 2012||March 2018|
*Please note that this list is only programs that are fast-tracked for CCC through the CACEP program. Applicants who hold Masters and Ph.D degrees in counselling from other programs are still eligible to apply for CCC though they will be required to submit detailed course descriptions demonstrating how their degree aligns with CCPA requirements. No other programs are eligible to be fast-tracked through the evaluation process.
