Supervision Information

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 after credentialing.  The supervision levels are based on how length of time certified and the ratios are as follows:

  • First 2 year period – 1:40
  • Second 2 year period – 1:80
  • Third and all following periods – 1:160

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.
