A Long ACC (Anger Control Counseling) Course typically involves multiple one-hour sessions over the course of weeks. While each course provider is different, this often takes 8-12 weeks to complete.
A Short ACC (Anger Control Counseling) Course is usually a one-day anger management course that can be completed in six to eight hours. Be sure to check with your attorney before taking the Short ACC course instead of the Long ACC Course.
