Although created nearly 25 years ago, the standards for and process of becoming an AASP Certified Consultant remain among the most misunderstood and debated issues in our organization. It has taken some time for the number of certified consultants to grow to a critical mass, but with employers and internships now listing AASP Certification as "required" or "highly desired," certification has experienced significant growth in recent years. The intent of this webinar is to continue the dialog surrounding the AASP certification, so that an increasing number of students and professionals can undersand the process and are successful in becoming AASP certified consultants. Audience questions and participation is highly encouraged.
This webinar will discuss the certification process including the following:
• Benefits of certification
• Courses and experiences needed for certification
• Tips and suggestions for successfully navigating the application process
• Frequently asked questions regarding mentorship, service provision, coursework and the differences between master's level and doctoral level applicants
