In order to receive a Master’s in this field you must attain over 700 hours(differs depending on University) in session with clients. Once the Master’s degree is attained many people go straight to trying to receive there Current State Licensure. In order to become what is termed a Preliminary Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) a graduate must first pass the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification, the State must do a background check, oral boards, computer tests, and much more which can take some time to complete. Before the status of PLPC is given a professional in the field of Counseling is termed a Counselor in Training. In all respects Counselor’s in Training are professionals in the field of Counseling/Psychology.
