What does the NCE entail and how do I register?

The National Counselor Examination (NCE) is a comprehensive exam that tests the knowledge and skills of aspiring counselors. It is administered by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) and is a requirement for obtaining the National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential. One of the important things to know about the NCE is the format of the exam.

The NCE is a computer-based test that consists of 200 multiple-choice questions. The exam is divided into six domains: Human Growth and Development, Social and Cultural Diversity, Counseling and Helping Relationships, Group Work, Career Development, and Professional Counseling Orientation and Ethics. Each domain is tested with a set of specific questions that assess the candidate's knowledge and skills in that particular area.

The NCE is a standardized exam, meaning that all test takers receive the same questions and have the same amount of time to complete the exam. The exam is administered in a secure testing center, and candidates are required to bring two forms of identification to the testing center on the day of the exam.

Now let's talk about how to register for the NCE. The first step is to visit the NBCC website and create an account. Once you have created an account, you can begin the registration process by selecting the NCE as the exam you wish to take. You will then be asked to pay the exam fee and select a testing center and date. It is important to note that the availability of testing dates and locations may vary, so it is advisable to register as soon as possible to secure your desired testing date and location.
