CS Announcement

Updated Clinical Supervisor (CS) Job Analysis

IC&RC is proud to announce the finalization of its updated Clinical Supervisor (CS) Job Analysis (JA).

A JA is the methodical process of determining what elements of practice and knowledge are important to assess as part of a certification examination and serves as the blueprint for the examination. It is the process that directly links an examination score to a specific job and ensures that an exam is valid, reliable, and legally defensible. To stay relevant to current trends and practices, a JA must be updated every five to seven years.

The first administration date for the updated examination will be February 1, 2018.

All candidates taking the CS examination on or after February 1st will be taking the updated examination. 

Updated Domains

The JA has resulted in some updates to the domains. The domain of Administration has been removed and will not be tested as part of the CS examination. Performance Evaluation has been renamed to Assessing Counselor Competencies and Performance.
