This certification is for those not ordained or licensed as a minister who want to assist their pastor in doing the long-term counseling that he and other staff members do not have the training or time to accomplish.
STEPS TO COMPLETE YOUR LAY COUNSELING CERTIFICATION
1. Purchase the correct certification package below and read the text books.
2. Attend each required course in residence, by watching the videos on DVD or on the class webpage. After completion, each assignment should be turned in or sent via E-mail to email@example.com for grading. Your final examination for the class will be sent to you when your last paper for that course is returned. Complete the final exam by underlining the correct answers and return it. Select the hyperlink below for the course syllabuses, course requirements, and E-school videos.
3. When the courses are satisfactorily completed, you will be enrolled in a counseling practicum where you will be required to complete at least 30 hours of face-to-face counseling and discuss your counseling with one of our qualified supervisors by E-mail (being careful to ensure client confidentiality). As part of your practicum you will receive coaching yourself to help you start an effective counseling ministry.
