IDFPR Rules on Continuing Education

All counselor licenses expire at the same time - March 31st of odd numbered years. The next expiration will be March 31, 2023. You will receive a notice of renewal from IDFPR prior to the renewal date. You can renew by mail, phone or online.  You must have completed the required CEs from approved providers prior to your renewal.

All LPC/LCPC will need 30 CEs (from approved providers) at the time of renewal. Extra CEs will not carryover to a future renewal cycle.

All CEs must be earned during the renewal cycle of April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2023.

If it is the first time you will renew your license, you will need 0 CEs.

There are a number of CEs that are required per renewal. Learn more about these requirements in our MEMBERS ONLY area.

LCPCs are required to have 18 CEs (once in a lifetime) on the provision of clinical supervision.
IMHCA offers these with some as home study courses. 

Further information on approved providers and the various ways to earn CEs is in our MEMBERS ONLY area.
