Approved California Training Plans

The California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP) allows unlimited distance learning for both basic and continuing education requirements.  For those starting the path to a drug/alcohol career, the first step is to complete a nine hour orientation course that is required by the State of California.  For your convenience we have added a button, below, that will take you directly to our Orientation course: 

Once this course is complete, students can make application for the RADT credential.  This credential will allow the student the opportunity of seeking employment in the field in order to begin gather work experience hours.  Programs and facilities know and understand the credentialing process and realize that the RADT credential is an entry point to the field.

 

Once you have your RADT credential, you will need to begin the educational process.  We have created a training plan that lists out the courses we offer that will allow you to meet the educational requirements AND prepare yourself for the national credentialing exam that you will be taking.  You can download a copy of that plan by clicking on the button below:

If you hold a Master’s Degree, the LAADC credential is your goal.  This requires 300 hours of drug/alcohol education, which must include 6 hours of ethics.  You can download a copy of that plan by clicking on the button below:
