Certificate Programs

As the field of counseling grows, it also becomes more specialized.  We recognize the need for clinicians to have access to advanced training, not only to provide the highest quality of care, but also to maintain an edge in the job market.  We have a variety of certificate training programs available, and are in the process of adding more. The specialty certificate programs combine a series of unique, specialized classes to provide the necessary academic training to work with a particular population or disorder.  Consult your local addictions counselor certification board about additional requirements to become board certified. (Note: If you are already certified or licensed in another discipline, these courses may count toward your CEUs.  Check our approval page to ensure our courses meet the requirements of your state boards.
