NACCTP: 1-WI21-CAT Class Package

$75680

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Oct 1, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program™ (NACCTP) specializes in providing OBH-approved addiction counselor classes to mental health professionals and graduate students who have or will have a clinical graduate degree by the time they apply for their Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) credential, though CE/CPD learners and undergraduate students are certainly welcome to attend with prior approval. NOTE: NACCTP classes can be taken independently, as required courses for CAT/CAS/LAC credentialing, and also as part of the Noeticus Professional Addiction Counselor - Certification Program™ (NPAC-CP).

The Certified Addiction Technician (CAT) Class Starter Package provides 77.0 hours of course content and 4 of the 9 required classes for the CAT credential as well as 4 of the 12 required classes for the LAC credential. For those pursuing the CAT credential only, the 5 remaining classes typically need to be taken through another provider (though the NACCTP occasionally offers some of them). For those pursuing the LAC credential, the 8 remaining classes are provided in the Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS) Class Starter Package or all of them can be found in the LAC Class Full Package.

In other words, for those pursuing the LAC credential there are two options for completing all 12 of the required classes: 1) Purchase the CAT Starter Package (4 classes; 77.0 hours) and the CAS Starter Package (8 classes; 119.0 hours) together; or 2) Purchase the LAC Class Full Package (12 classes; 196.0 hours) separately. Either way, save 20% on all registration categories (group, military/veteran, student) when purchasing this or any of our class or training packages through Noeticus®. The CAT Class Starter Package includes the following individual classes:

  1. Group Counseling Skills (21.0 Contact Hours)
  2. Motivational Interviewing (21.0 Contact Hours)
  3. Pharmacology I (14.0 Contact Hours)
  4. Principles of Addiction Treatment (21.0 Contact Hours)

The four (4) classes can be completed in as little as six months or can be extended up to 12 months. NOTE: All Noeticus® Class and Training Packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and must be completed within 12 months of date of purchase (unless other arrangements are made). NACCTP classes can be taken as an educational requirement for CAT/CAS/LAC credentialing through OBH/DORA or as continuing education (CE) or continuing professional development (CPD) only. Additionally, these and all addiction counselor classes seek to enhance the ability of the counselor to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic, and socioeconomic diversity. IMPORTANT: The start date listed here only indicates when the package goes on sale, not when the classes begin. Please check individual listings for specific class start dates.
