We offer accredited continuing education for counselors and social workers in Illinois.
The Fine Print
First: We are NBCC ACEP (#6248) and a Social Work CE Sponsor in the State of Illinois (#159-000875), but we are not responsible for the validation of these credits with your particular licensing body. Always check with your state before you commit to any CE program!
Second: When you register and pay a security deposit, you are acknowledging our "NO REFUND" policy. If you withdraw from a class, we will refund payments less the non-refundable deposit when cancellation is complete prior to 72-hours of the scheduled class. Cancellations within 72-hours of the class date will not be refunded. We go into greater detail as to "why" under our FAQs!
Third: When the class is rescheduled due to low enrollment or cancelled due to an act of God or an unforeseen circumstance, a refund will not be issued, but a credit will remain on file to be applied to a future CE offering.
Fourth: When you participate in our training program and receive information and materials, you understand that the materials and ideas presented are copyrighted and owned fully and in part by North Shore Counseling, Ltd., and that no materials may be copied or used for personal or professional gain or compensation without the expressed written consent of North Shore Counseling.

Will these hours count toward my CE requirement?
You need to check with your state's licensing board. We address our credential in the State of Illinois here. If you are an IL LCSW/LSW or LCPC/LPC, then yes, they "count."
How long has your Clinical Supervision Training Program been running?
We developed this program in 2005, when the law was very new. Passed in 2003, the law required ALL current LCPCs to have the training done by 2007. For 10 years, we've been offering training BY LCPCs and FOR LCPCs. All the details for that program are at www.lcpcSupervisionTraining.com.
What is the dress code?
Dress for comfort (yes, yoga pants and sneakers are fine!). This training offers a relaxed atmosphere, and Dr. Vicki will go out of her way to make you feel at ease!
I have food allergies. Will there be food I can eat?
Let us know what your dietary restrictions are in advance (along with any other accommodations that need to be made for you) and we will absolutely do our best to ensure that you are comfortable and cared for throughout our time together!
Why is there a nonrefundable deposit? We offer a "boutique" experience and are working on your training long before you get here! We gather information from you and craft a unique learning experience for all in attendance. We also pre-print CE certificates. This work upfront requires compensation, even if you cannot attend the training.
