No, the MAC does not provide the training required by state licensing boards or prepare you for licensure exams. It is designed to improve the counsel you are currently offering in your daily relationships and to equip you for the more formal role of counselor in the context of the local church and other ministry and non-profit settings.
The degree timing is flexible, but most students finish in 3-5 years
