New 18-Credit Certificate Begins Fall 2022
The certificate is designed for peer helpers and volunteers who want to begin a pathway to professional credentials, which can lead to full time employment in the field with benefits. As a stackable credential, students can also roll credits into a two-year human services associate degree or four-year program. The certificate also complements a psychology degree pathway.
Certificate classes are flexible, and include online, hybrid (online and in-person mix), and on-campus courses. Students with prior college credit, work, or volunteer experience in the field may be eligible for additional credits toward the certificate. This is not an automatic acceptance. To be admitted into this certificate program, students must arrange for an interview with the program coordinator.
The Social Educational and Behavioral Science Department abides by the accepted national standard that recommends a minimum of two years of sobriety for any prospective trainee in the field of alcohol and other drug-use counseling.
