In the state of California all organizations that wish to be recognized as counselor certifying organizations must be accredited by the NCCA.

NCCA stands for The National Commission for Certifying Agencies
By definition, the NCCA is an independent nongovernmental agency that accredits professional certification in a variety of professions, including fitness. Sep 7, 2011
ICE created the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) in 1987.
The NCCA’s Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs, which were created in the mid-1970s, were the first standards developed by the credentialing industry for professional certification programs. The NCCA Standards were developed to help ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public.
They highlight the essential elements of a high-quality program
The NCCA standards are consistent with The Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (AERA, APA, & NCME, 1999) and are applicable to all professions and industries.
Certification organizations that submit their programs for accreditation are evaluated based on the process and products and not the content; therefore, the standards are applicable to all professions and industries.
Program content validity is demonstrated with a comprehensive job analysis conducted and analyzed by experts, with data gathered from stakeholders in the occupation or industry.
NCCA accredited programs certify individuals in a wide range of professions and occupations including nurses, automotive professionals, respiratory therapists, counselors, emergency technicians, crane operators and more.
NCCA has accredited approximately 330 programs from more than 130 organizations
