|The Rhode Island Certification Process is designed to measure counselor
competency . RIBCCDP recognizes that Chemical Dependency
Counselors, Prevention Specialists, Student Assistance Counselors and
Criminal Justice Professionals are necessarily educated in a wide range of
disciplines, therapeutic approaches and counseling techniques.
The RIBCCDP defines a baseline standard for all credentials offered.
Counselors are given recognition for meeting specific predetermined
criteria in substance abuse. Voluntary professional certification is not
intended as a license to practice, nor as a qualification for a certain
position. It may be accepted as a preferred or alternate credential by an
employer, civil service system, state licensing body or third-party
underwriter. This system provides the counselor with a tool for
marketing his/her skills and competence.
The RIBCCDP has been a participating member in the International
Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) since 1988. IC&RC sets
international standards for counselor competency and develops and
maintains written examinations for each reciprocal credential offered.
