THE COUNSELOR PREPARATION COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION (CPCE) Approximately 410 college and university counseling programs in the United States use CCE’s Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE). The 160-question examination was created to measure the knowledge and skills of individuals who have completed graduatelevel courses and are preparing to become professional counselors. Schools have traditionally had the option to offer the examination by Anywhere Proctored Browser (APB), which delivers the examination via a secure internet browser, or by ComputerBased Testing (CBT), which is offered at approved Pearson VUE facilities. In addition, test takers now have the convenience of taking the examination from home with OnVUE online proctoring.
