Supervision varies between credentials, who may provide it and at what ratio.
For the CADC, LCAS, and CCJP; the practicum supervision must be completed with a CCS or CSI at a ratio of 1:10 hours. After the practicum is completed, the supervision ratio changes to 1:40, however it may only be provided by CCS or CSI. The CADC and CCJP require on-going supervision at a ratio of 1:40 for the first renewal cycle, 1:80 for the next, and finally 1:160 for as long as they hold the credential. This may be provided by an LCAS.
The above paragraph applies to the CPS as well, however this supervision may be provided by a CPS with 3 years of experience.
Neither the CPS nor the LCAS require on-going supervision.
For the CCS/CSI application process, a Clinical Supervisor Intern must receive supervision from a CCS at a ratio of 1:80 hours. The CCS is required to update the NCASPPB each year supervision to a CSI is provided.
