CIP Application Process Updated

PCB is pleased to announce that the CIP credential has been updated. Applicants for this certification will no longer need to complete a multiple choice examination, rather a enhanced portfolio process is required. A portfolio approach is highly personalized and allows applicants to document their specific knowledge, skills, abilities and competence as an interventionist. Details can be found in the application. PCB extends a special thank you to our Subject Matter Experts and AIS for their valuable assistance in completing this process.

Recovery Specialist Supervisor Core Competencies

PCB, in conjunction with PRO-A, conducted a focus group meeting of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to review recovery specialist supervisor competencies. Seven core competencies were established, with each core competency further specifying knowledge, skills, and abilities. The document is intended for organizations or persons to use as an outline for the development of trainings for those individuals who are providing supervision to substance use disorder recovery specialists.

This is a public document that may be used; however, PCB must be credited as a reference in your materials.
