The CCMC credential 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 credential includes 12 contact hours of continuing educational credit in a Five Module training sequence. The CCMC credential 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 credential.
The mission of the CCMC credential 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.
