Counselors currently engaging in distance counseling are offered a DCC (Distance Counselor Credential) through NBCC. This is a focused training for those practicing distance counseling, and although it is not mandatory for ND counselors to have this training, it is highly recommended.
The NDBCE also reminds counselors involved in distance counseling to be aware of the laws and requirements of the state where the client resides, which may require licensure in that state.
Further information on distance counseling activities and practice can be found in the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics, page 17, Section H. It is extremely important to review the ACA Code of Ethics before entering into distance counseling practice. The Code of Ethics can be viewed on this website.
If you reside inside or outside of the state of North Dakota, and wish to practice counseling via Internet with clients residing in North Dakota, you must be licensed by the North Dakota Board of Counselor Examiners.
