Note to Supervisory Education Students and Supervisory Candidates:

The East Central Region Certification Committee meets twice a year, once in February and again in September.  A priority is given to applicants needing to meet a committee for a vote (Candidacy and Extensions), but we see Readiness applicants when there is available space.

Supervisory Education Students (SES) and others interested in the Certification process are encouraged to read the 2016 ACPE Standards and the 2016 Certification Manual to find out the latest in terms of what is required in the Certification process.

The next opportunity to meet the Certification Committee at the Regional Conference will be at the spring Regional Meeting on February 22-23, 2017 in Hueston Woods State Park Lodge. (Committees will meet on Wednesday and Thursday before the conference begins). Deadline for submission of Application and Fee must be postmarked by December 14, 2016. Materials to committee members must be postmarked no later than January 18, 2017.
