NACC Certification is NOT to be confused with state licensing. Most states have laws governing the practice of general counseling. These laws vary from state to state.
The purpose of state regulatory laws is to protect the public and ensure professionalism within the counseling profession. NACC strives to attain the same goals, and more. As Christians we know that counseling with the Word of God is the only answer for a dying world, yet at the same time, we must purpose to operate within the legal guidelines set forth by state regulations.
The state recognizes that counseling is one of the responsibilities of the local church. For this reason, the state does not interfere with the ministry of counseling, as long as counseling is provided under the following conditions:
1. That the counseling service is provided through a legally organized/operated local church or a nationally recognized denomination.
2. That the counselor is trained and commissioned by the legally recognized organization.
Please note that NACC does not “endorse” counselors who have completed one of our certificate programs. A significant part of any professional certification process is supervised counseling to observe if a student is appropriately applying what has been learned, along with periodic recertification requirements. Certification from our organization, represents that the student has completed the required coursework within that certificate program.
NACC has partnered with Christian Bible Institute & Seminary to offer degree programs and continuing professional education for its members http://www.christianbibleinstitute.net/degrees/
