Competency Assessment FAQ

Yay! You found us! We offer the competency assessment LIVE online. Here are some common questions and answers to help you get started!

What do I need to take the Competency Assessment? 

  • 40 Hour Coursework Certificate

  • Background Check within 180 days (We do not accept online background checks.)

  • Copy of your current Drivers License

  • Professionalism! Yes, we hope everyone understands that this is to prepare you for a professional certification. You will also be meeting a client online, so you will need to practice ethics and maintain a friendly demeanor.

What is a 40 hour certificate? 

  • This is the certificate you are given at the end of completing your 40 hour course. 

  • The certificate must be signed by the responsible certificant who provided the course. 

  • The course must have been completed within 180 days and no less than 5 days. 

Where can I obtain a background check? 

  • If you live in Florida, you will need to get a Level 2 Background Check at a local live scan vendor near you. For the ORI and OCA number, please email

  • If you live outside of Florida, you will need to obtain a background check for personal use. Please email for more info. 

How does the process work? 

  • The assessment is conducted LIVE via Zoom with the assistant assessor and a client from our practice. Candidates may not bring their own client.

  • Once we receive proof of a cleared background check with fingerprinting, age verification, & your 40 hour certificate, we will send you a scheduling email.

  • Then once you set your appointments we send you a packet with step-by-step instructions on how to complete each task. This is allowed to be used throughout your assessment. 

  • The client tasks are separated and take less than 10 minutes to complete. We provide the client from our practice.

  • The role-play & interview tasks take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete. It really depends on your preparedness.
