Rehabilitation Counselors

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

The counseling profession is regulated in nearly every state and the District of Columbia. This regulation may be in the form of credentialing, registry, certification, or licensure. Regulations, however, vary by state and sometimes by employer. For example, an employer may require certification even if the state does not. You will need to check with your state's licensing board as well as your employer for specific information about your circumstances.
