I did apply and have received my CA Certification. I applied early in September, received a confirmation toward the end of September and received the actual certification in October. No problems. However, it seems to be taking a lot longer now. Some of our therapists have been waiting over 3 months. The process is easy, just follow the directions and make sure you are sending everything they want. Best of luck
The California state licensing process is SO much easier than the LA city one. It took me years to get the LA city one, all BS but the state one took me a couple weeks. You just get fingerprints, get your CEU's fill out an applic. and pay the bill (much less). Good luck!
I've been doing this for 20 years, and I've been hearing about the California State licence thing for about 12 years. As far as I know it's not a requirement yet. Until it Is, I probably won't go there. Just like the National Certification thing. If it's required, I'll do it, but right now, it's just one more thing to spend money on.
...The CAMTC process isn't hard. It worked out great. All you need is a little patience. I love it that the applicant can check their own status ('in process') themselves... Obtaining fingerprints was easy, and the application form along with the transcripts was very well explained on the website: camtc.org. I sent in the ppwk along with payment and then waited. I applied in Aug/Sept and received confirmation from you in Feb. What a lovely day that was! Btw, will I be receiving a physical license in the mail sometime? Please advise... Thanks!
