Interpretation of Standard III.C

Standard III.C on site supervisor qualifications states that they have the following:

4. Relevant training in counseling supervision

The Board believes that the above Standard requires that all supervisors have some sort of training, but does not provide detailed requirements.  Therefore, CACREP programs will need to document some evidence of this, such as providing training themselves to the site supervisors or showing how site supervisors from other related disciplines have received training in counseling supervision. Both the programs and the Board will need to make decisions on what is relevant and appropriate training based on educational soundness.
