Procedures for Prior Approval for Ohio Counselor and Social Worker Board Continuing Education Units (contact hour credits)

As an approved provider of the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker & Marriage & Family Therapist Board, OCCA may provide CEUs for agency training event(s) it co-sponsors.

Please read the following procedures carefully before you request OCCA to co-sponsor your event and provide Ohio Counselor, Social Worker & Marriage & Family Therapist Board CEUs.

Note: OCCA is only an approved provider for Counselor and Social Worker CEUs. We do not yet provide Marriage and Family Therapist CEUs.
