Online Approved Supervision Refresher Course

To maintain the highest quality supervisors in the field, AAMFT requires that Approved Supervisors take a refresher course prior to the renewal of their designation. This course is designed specifically to meet that requirement and to keep participants up to date on the practice of clinical supervision. In addition to attending a 3-hour online live webinar, participants will view PowerPoint presentations, read a few articles, and complete 2 short written assignments, one before the webinar and one after. This course must be completed within 6 months of initial registration. 

As of July 1, 2015 all refresher courses are offered exclusively through AAMFT. If you have any questions on if your planned course is approved, please contact central@aamft.org prior to taking the course.

NOTE: There is a high demand for this course. We at AAMFT will try to meet this demand as best we can; however, to guarantee availability, early registration is strongly advised.

This online course consists of three parts:

  1. Completion of a two-hour online didactic portion to be completed on your own through AAMFT's Teneo online learning system.
