Lakeland College now offers post-master's certificates in counseling for any individual who holds a master's degree in counseling from a regionally accredited college or university.
This professional development program is designed for individuals who wish to add to and diversify their counseling skills for different audiences, whether in school counseling, community counseling or higher education counseling.
Individuals who complete the post-graduate certificate in school counseling are eligible to apply for licensure through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction while individuals complete the post-graduate certificate in community counseling are eligible to apply for licensure through the Department of Safety and Professional Services.
These certificate programs generally require individuals to complete an additional 12 credit hours (four classes) which includes coursework, practicums and internships. Further coursework may be required in some instances. This non-degree program is offered through Lakeland's seven centers.
"Certification programs are time effective and cost effective, and allow individuals to build upon skills they already have," said Deborah Bilzing, director of Lakeland's counseling program. "Certification can open up career opportunities in other specialized areas of professional counseling."
