Currently, our coursework does not qualify toward the DCC credential. While Online Therapy Institute co-founders are the current DCC curriculum authors, that curriculum was created for ReadyMinds and currently the Center for Credentialing and Education has only approved one provider to obtain the qualifying coursework at this time.
Our courses that include content related to Online Therapy meet the Continuing Education criteria necessary to maintain your DCC credential. Be sure to check out our Course Catalogue!

If you are curious about the difference in the DCC Certification and the OTI Online Therapy Specialist Certificate, read further.
As a national (United States) credential offered by Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE), the Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC) represents to employers and the public that credential holders have met the established requirements and adhere to the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Code of Ethics and the Ethical Requirements for The Practice of Internet Counseling.
CCE has selected ReadyMinds to deliver the DCC training. Since 2004, DeeAnna Nagel, co-founder of Online Therapy Institute has facilitated DCC trainings across the United States and has also edited, authored and developed the DCC curriculum that is currently used for in-person and online trainings for ReadyMinds.
The Online Therapy Specialist Certificate provides a much more in-depth experience with 60+ clock hours and 40 continuing education hours awarded to the trainee (only 40 hours for any one program can be awarded for the purposes of continuing education). While there is overlap in content, the Specialist Certificate is a more comprehensive experience and further prepares the trainee to work with clients via technology. For more information click here.
We offer a 30% discount if you have obtained the DCC credential and would like to advance your knowledge by enrolling in the Online Therapy Specialist Certificate Programme.
