Certified Training Centers

What are Certified Training Centers?

In many ways, ACBC Certified Training Centers serve as the frontline for the biblical counseling movement. Housed in counseling centers, seminaries, and local churches, these vetted and approved institutions are made up of men and women who are experienced, compassionate, and wise biblical counselors. They not only counsel faithfully, but provide quality training leading to certification.

Currently there are 70 Certified Training Centers that can be found all around the country and one location internationally. Each of these centers offers all of the training, reading, and observations that are required for Phase 1 of ACBC Certification and they exclusively offer training leading to our Counseling Specializations.
