Notes for Mentors
  • All CSCCa-approved mentors must utilize the updated Proper Exercise Techniques page on the CSCCa website during CSCCa-approved practicum/internships to ensure that SCCC candidates are properly prepared for the practical exam.  Any questions or concerns should be addressed to the CSCCa National Office.
  • If you have changed schools or institutions since becoming an approved mentor, please email the National Office with this information to verify that you are still eligible to be a CSCCa Approved Mentor. More information regarding which job titles/positions are eligible to serve as CSCCa Approved Mentors is provided on the CSCCa website. It is extremely important that we keep the list of CSCCa Approved Mentors up-to-date to provide accurate information for those individuals searching for an approved internship.
  • If you would like a copy of the most recent version of the CSCCa Mentoring Booklet (Updated January 2021), please email CSCCa staff an updated mailing address.
  • If you will have interns this fall who are going to sit for the SCCC Spring 2023 Exam and need forms (i.e., Practicum Waiver, Internship Completion Verification Form), please email the National Office at, and we will provide you with a PDF copy . Please be aware these are also available in your Mentoring Booklet. You are encouraged to make copies of these forms as the mentoring booklets are to be used for multiple candidates.
