Counselor Certification Program

Our 1-year Counselor Certification Program is offered four times per year until August 2019.


Due to overwhelming demand for counselor certification prior to the implementation of the rule requiring a 48-hour master’s degree in school counseling, INSPIRE TEXAS will offer one final cohort beginning in August 2019.


Each course within the training is divided into different modules that may last up to 2 weeks. Within each module, you will have various activities that include online research, interviews, required readings, group discussions, and interaction with instructors who are experienced school counselors.
