California BBS Continuing Education requirements

What courses do I need to be a supervisor?

NEW BBS regulations for beginning supervisors went into effect January 1 2022. Supervisors of AMFTs and trainees, ASWs and APCCs are now required to complete 15 hours of supervision training before starting the supervision. All supervisors are now required to take 6 hours of supervision training with each license renewal.

The 15 hours can be taken as multiple courses as long as they total  to a minimum of 15 hours. You may take 3 courses at supervisionCEU.com, making sure to include Law, Ethics & Supervision: The Use of Authority as one of the three, to meet the BBS requirement.

Can courses be applied to the BBS Law and Ethics requirement?

Yes, several courses at supervisionCEU.com may be used to meet the BBS Law and Ethics requirement. They have a red icon and are clearly labeled on the home page. Licensed therapists must take 6 hours of legal/ethical training with each two year license renewal.

 “A licensee can take a supervision-focused law and ethics course from an approved provider and can apply it to the law and ethics requirement as long as they are not also using it to meet the supervision training requirement.  A single course cannot fulfill both requirements.”

Are supervisionCEU.com courses approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences?

As of July 2017 the BBS no longer approves continuing education providers. Instead, they approve Continuing Education Approval Agencies to certify providers. SupervisionCEU.com is certified through CAMFT, Continuing Education Provider #56659, to provide courses that meet the BBS continuing education requirements.

If I am licensed in a state other than California can I use supervisionCEU.com to meet my continuing education requirements?

SupervisionCEU.com provides courses that are approved to meet California BBS continuing education requirements. However, if you are licensed in another state you can contact your state licensing Board and ask if they will accept continuing education courses from a California BBS approved provider.
