Clinical Supervision

Whether you are new to the clinical supervision role or have years of experience, CPT’s portfolio of supervision-focused workshops has something for everyone.

Take one or two workshops that best meet your professional development needs, helps you fulfill your annual continuing education requirements, or maintain your supervisor credential.

Or, take 30-45 CE through our Fast Track series to become a licensing supervisor.

Fast Track

Approximately three each year, we schedule 5-8 workshops (30-48 CEs total) that  meet over a four-week period with the goal of fast tracking you to fulfill Board requirements. Even though the workshops are fast tracked–you can take it at your own pace. You have the option of registering for all the workshops offered over the 2-week period or completing them one at a time as your schedule permits.
