    The Board is seeking relevant feedback on your supervision experience.

    BBS has formed a Supervision Committee in an effort to conduct a holistic review of the current requirements for supervised work experience and for supervisors. The Committee will focus on establishing standards for supervision and supervisors that will ensure consumer protection without impeding the licensure process.

    Your participation will greatly assist the committee in making future decisions. Your effort in this survey is voluntary and all responses are anonymous.

  • Urgent Notice to CE Providers and Licensees:
    The Board has gained approval of its new Continuing Education regulation. This will result in upcoming changes for Continuing Education Providers and Board licensees.
