National Counselor Exam (NCE): (http://www.nbcc.org/nce).

The NCE is used for two purposes: (1) national counselor certification and (2) state counseling licensure. The purpose of the NCE is to assess knowledge, skills, and abilities viewed as important for providing effective counseling services. It is intended to assess cognitive knowledge which should be known by all counselors regardless of their individual professional specialties. The online exam consists of 200 questions, 160 of which are scored. Passing scores are based on statistical analysis. Although the NCE is not required for program graduation, students are strongly encouraged to take the exam because of its similarity to the CPCE and it being a requirement for counseling licensure in Pennsylvania.
