Growing a statewide prevention workforce is critical. One significant aspect of building a prevention workforce throughout HHS Region 10 states includes the option or requirement for certification. This On-the-Spot Consultation will explore challenges and opportunities for HHS Region 10 states to support prevention certification.
Join Northwest PTTC staff as we convene representatives from state certification boards and state substance misuse prevention agencies to clarify what substance misuse prevention certification is and the various pathways available to regional prevention practitioners to become certified through their state. The panel will discuss how credentialing is administered through states, options for practitioners who do not have a state prevention certification board and the role of the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) in the certification process. During this session, participants will break out into rooms to explore the state-specific challenges and opportunities for prevention certification and professional development. We look forward to gathering participant feedback as we work to build and sustain a well-trained substance misuse prevention workforce.
