WELCOME

Welcome to the official website of the North Dakota Board of Counselor Examiners (NDBCE)!

The NDBCE was established by the North Dakota Legislature in 1989 to regulate the practice of professional counseling in the state (NDCC 43-47). Presently, the NDBCE offers three counseling licenses (LAPC, LPC & LPCC) and maintains active files for some 330 licensed professional counselors in North Dakota. The board sets the requirements for these licenses, administers the examinations needed to qualify for licensure, develops and monitors continuing education for counselors, and manages the complaint procedure relative to professional counseling.

If you have any comments, please contact our Board Members or the NDBCE Office.

CRIMINAL HISTORY CHECKS

According to NDCC 12-60-24.2, all applicants for licensure shall be required to submit to a statewide and nationwide criminal history check. Once an application for license is received in the board office, the applicant will receive a Criminal History Record Check Request and two (2) fingerprint cards. The applicant will follow the instructions on the Criminal History Record Check Request. All fees associated with obtaining a background check are the responsibility of the applicant.
