The Rehabilitation Counseling certificate program offers a seven-course sequence for students who have completed a master’s degree in a related field and are interested in taking the national exam to become a certified rehabilitation counselor (CRC). The program meets the standards set by the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification.
State vocational rehabilitation agencies, as well as some community rehabilitation providers, require their counseling staff to be CRCs. In Massachusetts, a counselor needs to be a CRC to be eligible to apply for licensure. Successful completion of our certificate program prepares students to take the national exam and become a CRC.
