Application for Continuing Education Approval

TCA sponsors its divisions and chapters by authorizing them to use TCA’s continuing education provider number so that they may offer a variety of CE programs and events. Applications are reviewed by a team of professional counselors to ensure the program complies with the criteria set forth by each regulatory body.

If you are a TCA division or chapter, please complete the application below to request co-sponsorship of your program or event and use of TCA’s CE provider number.

  • Submit a separate application for each program offered. A multi-program event requires a separate request for each program.
  • 1-3 programs: Submit application no less than 30 days prior to event
  • 4 or more programs: Submit application no less than 60 days prior to event

Review the CE Approval Guide prior to submitting an application.
