The IC&RC is the largest credentialing organization in the world. They offer internationally recognized credentials and examinations for recovery professionals, and they created the certification requirements for addiction counselors in the U.S. and many other countries.
Currently, 48 state certification boards here in the U.S. base their certification requirements off of the IC&RC guidelines for certification, and people all over the U.S. take the certification exam designed by the IC&RC to become certified with their state boards.
The Addictions Training Institute is in compliance with the IC&RC guidelines, meaning that we cover the required education hours for certification, and we are very proud to cover the material that will be found on the IC&RC certification exam.
