Accreditation and Credentialing
Accreditation and Credentialing is the key to a successful educational program, especially in addictions and mental health. Most counseling credentials are run by the state government of which you reside, however coaching is run by a professional body, and is not state or federally governed. Only a few places license their counselors and exams are direct by state. Professional Coaching and Intervention has no state or federal regulations and no state or federal licensing bodies. At this point, each educational institution has been designated to offer their own certifications and credentialing process. We have aligned and chosen some of the best non-partial credentialing offices to review our manuals, exams, and process and we are pleased to offer continuing education units. We are an international school, as we believe you should not be confined to work in one state and you will need to travel globally. Our certifications and certifying bodies prepare you for global not local work.
We are proud core providers for addiction counseling education in the USA, Canada, and Europe.
Our credentialing bodies are below:
