The purpose of the experience questions is to document and verify how much acceptable post-Masters experience in actual marriage and family counseling the applicant has already completed. The supervisor must first document how much experience and direct supervision the applicant has already received. Then, both the supervisor and the applicant will know how much more experience and supervision he or she needs to get while licensed as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist to later meet the requirements for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Post-Masters Marriage and Family Counseling Experience Requirements explains the required hours of experience.
The hours of experience and supervision that the applicant has not yet completed are documented on the Written Plan for Marriage and Family Therapy Experience and Supervision. To ensure that both the applicant and the supervisor understand the plan, both must sign off on it.
When answering the experience questions on the application, it is important for both applicant and supervisor(s) to understand the following:
Applications are processed in DELPROS (Delaware Professional Regulation Online Services). The online license application process is simple and provides you with clear instructions throughout each stage of the application process. We strongly recommend that you understand what the requirements are for the license you are pursuing. Then, request and gather the documents you need before you begin the application process. Most of the information and forms are on this website. For further clarification of requirements, refer to your profession’s License Law and the Rules and Regulations.
In order to apply for a license or service request, you must have a DELPROS account. To create a new account or log into an existing DELPROS account, follow the instructions at the beginning of the application process. As part of the final steps of the application process, DELPROS instructs you to either “attach” or “upload” the required documents directly to your application and/or to “acknowledge” that you will either send them in yourself or make arrangements for “third-party” documents/forms to be sent to the Board office. Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state. Official license verifications and/or transcripts are acceptable when received electronically directly from the State Board or school/institution. Note that forms requiring a signature, seal, or notary must be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document. All documents received by mail are scanned and attached to the appropriate license records.
In DELPROS, you have the ability to save your application and return to it to edit/update information or upload documents for up to six months. However, if you do not submit your application within six months, you will have to restart your online application process. The Board office begins processing applications shortly after submission in the portal. You may check the status of your application in the DELPROS system throughout the whole process and we will correspond with you by email. The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).
In addition to submitting the application and fee in DELPROS, you must submit:
Remember to add the planned hours to the completed hours to make sure that the totals meet the requirements for eventual licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
