Course Detail: CCMC - Certificate in Clinical Military Counseling (CCMC)
Course Description
The Certificate in Clinical Military Counseling promotes and achieves a high standard of excellence providing best practices for the competent and ethical practice of serving the military community across a variety of military branches and settings. Completion of the CCMC course includes 12 contact hours of continuing educational credit in a Five Module training sequence. The certificate can be earned all online (1.2 CEUs) or taken as a combination of a one-day workshop (0.6 CEUs) and online (0.6 CEUs). The Five Modules are self-paced and include didactic presentations by professionals that have extensive experience dealing with the medical, physical, psychosocial, behavioral, mental health, family life, vocational, and career transition needs of military cultures. After the completion of each training module, participants will take a multiple-choice exam to earn the CCMC.

Training Mission
The mission of the CCMC is to provide training and development for professional counselors, psychologists, social workers, and other behaviorally-licensed and certified professionals who serve, or want to serve active duty service personnel, veterans, veterans with disabilities, and family members across the different military branches in a variety of service-related settings. Participants will increase their knowledge, awareness, and skills of the unique cultural differences in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of military vs. civilian or community mental health and related services. Five modules in the CCMC Program offer participants comprehensive material related to the service member and veterans' medical, psychosocial, behavioral, mental health, family life, vocational, and career transition needs.




About the CCMC Exam
The Certificate in Clinical Military Counseling (CCMC) is a 25 question exam based on all materials contained within five training modules. Exam questions are written in multiple choice and case study format. Participants may use all materials contained within the training modules to answer any of the 25 questions. Students must achieve a passing rate of 70% on the CCMC Exam. Students will be allowed to re-take the exam, one time, for a specific training module where they did not achieve a passing score.
