About the Event:

The road to licensure in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and throughout the US, is rigorous, complex and paved with details. Many of the members of NVLPC have travelled this road, and we want to support graduate students, future licensure applicants and current residents in their journey towards LPC licensure. This program will cover the areas of where to start with licensure application, the details of supervision, resident terminology, and testing and endorsement information. An opportunity for Q & A will also be offered. Participants will leave this session with a roadmap moving forward to get them to licensure in Virginia!
