Continuing Education Requirement

Attention South Carolina Counselors and Therapists: During the period of public emergency, approved CEU providers, who have not previously been approved to provide their CEU courses online, may offer their courses online, if the provider has a system set up to do so. The provider will need to include a test at the end of the course, and the participant must receive a passing score of 80% or better for a CE certificate to be provided. The provider must also include an evaluation of the CEU program to be completed by the participant. During the period of the declared public health emergency, the Board has determined that appropriately licensed professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, addiction counselors, and psychoeducational specialists, who are licensed out-of-state, and who are in a current established relationship with a client who now resides in South Carolina, may continue their therapeutic relationship via telecommunication.
