In Partnership with Cascadia Training: Preparation Training for the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Exam (NCMHCE)
This workshop will take place live on Zoom. You will receive your Zoom link/invitation the week of the event.
One of the steps to becoming a Licensed Mental Health Counselor is to pass the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Exam (NCMHCE). This training will provide you with the information and support you’ll need to prepare for this exam; procedurally, educationally and psychologically.
Passing the NCMHCE is a project…successful projects require planning, preparation, resources and most important of all….Confidence!
For most attendees, this workshop is their first step in preparing for the NCMHCE. This workshop will help you set up a realistic action plan by helping you to:
- Understand the process
- Assess your clinical readiness
- Explore and gather test preparation resources
- Assess your schedule/limitations
- Identify a realistic test date.
Attendees will receive a variety of training materials to help them study. We also recommend that you purchase the NCMHCE clinical simulation self-assessment examination study guide published by the NBCC. This booklet is filled with practice exam questions to help you become more familiar with the specific problem types that comprise the NCMHCE exam. Be sure to have a DSM 5.
During this training you will also be introduced to other students in the same boat you are, which gives you the opportunity to find a study buddy or two if you’d like.
