There is no evidence that CACREP programs produce a "better" or more effectual counselor than a non-CACREP program. To make CACREP the "standard" is ridiculous. I have clinically supervised people in TN who have moved to VA and have added their value to the people of the Commonwealth. NONE were CACREP grads; ALL are excellent counselors. It is interesting to see a state elevate an accreditation agency over its own power and reason. If I were a Virginian, I'd be livid for that reason alone, whether I was a counselor or not.
