DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Addiction and Recovery Therapy: Level 1 - Practice Endorsement™ (NART-PE-1; 50.0 Contact Hours) is designed for mental health professionals interested in adding a specialization in working with substance use disorders (SUDS) to their skills set and perhaps attaining the Certified and/or Licensed Addiction Counselor credential in Colorado as well, though this is not necessary and therefore learners from outside Colorado are welcome to attend. This training package provides 50 contact hours of course content over the sequence of three classes in addition to a synthesis project. The Level 1 Practice Endorsement series covers foundational skills and concepts and the Level 2 Practice Endorsement series builds upon these with more advanced coursework. All of the coursework can be applied to the Certified Addiction Technician (CAT) and/or Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS) credentials in Colorado, though some may not be necessary for the Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) credential in Colorado. Pursuing the CAT/CAS/LAC is not required to participate in this training series and indeed is not really the purpose of either of these Practice Endorsements. Rather, they pull from key aspects of the full Colorado Addiction Counselor Training Program curriculum to provide mental health professionals with a generalist background with some essential tools and information needed to work effectively with addictions, substance use problems, and other compulsive or problem behaviors. All of the classes come with a file of resources that can be immediately applied to clinical work and include skills practice experientials or discussions in small groups. The three classes and synthesis project are designed to be completed in six months, but can be extended up to 12 months.
The Noeticus Addiction and Recovery Therapy: Level 1 - Practice Endorsement™ (NART-PE-1; 50.0 Contact Hours) includes the following individual trainings:
- Culturally-Informed Treatment (14.0 Contact Hours)
- Pharmacology I (14.0 Contact Hours)
- Principles of Addiction Treatment (21.0 Contact Hours)
- Synthesis Project = TBD (1.0 Contact Hours)
NOTE: Training Packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and must be completed within 12 months of purchase (unless other arrangements are made). Courses must be completed in the sequence indicated. Packages must be purchased at time of original sale and cannot be purchased retroactively. Placement is contingent on availability and is not automatic. Enrollment in a Practice Endorsement does not guarantee placement in a Certification Program. Courses can be taken independently and also as part of our various Practice Endorsements and/or Certification Programs if available. IMPORTANT: The start date listed only indicates when the package is designed to begin, not when the separate classes begin. Please check individual listings for specific class start dates.

Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - General Information
The Noeticus Center for Professional Development™ (NCPD) at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute® offers a variety of Practice Endorsements (PEs) and Certification Programs (CPs) to mental health professionals and those in related disciplines seeking to deepen their focus in one particular area of practice beyond a singular course. Practice Endorsements are usually between 45.0 and 50.0 contact hours in length and typically are comprised of three, 15-hour classes, though in some cases other combinations are used to total that amount of time. If more than one Practice Endorsement is offered as part of a series, Level 1 Practice Endorsements must be completed prior to Level 2 Practice Endorsements.
Practice Endorsements offer course participants the experience of engaging in a mini-sequenced course of study with a learning cohort of like-minded professionals committed to taking the next step in their professional development. The curriculum for each of the endorsements has been carefully and coherently assembled based on thematic similarities in their content and/or application areas. Additionally, the material is shared in a way that reflects contemporary practices in adult learning theory - including both didactic and experiential learning along with ample opportunities for immediate application and building strong and lasting connections with other training participants that extend well beyond the courses themselves. IMPORTANT: Registration for a Professional Endorsement offers open enrollment to any participant, whether through individual courses or full packages.
By contrast, Certification Programs (CPs) require additional components beyond the associated courses, typically including such things as outside practice sessions, clinical consultation/supervision, skills demonstration, and/or a final certification project. In some instances, Practice Endorsements can be applied to partially fulfill the educational requirements for a Certification Program. Certification Programs are more intensive and integrative than Practice Endorsements and thus require more focus and commitment to complete, usually ranging from 100.0 to 150.0 contact hours each. IMPORTANT: Registration for a Certification Program is through application and approval only, thus open enrollment is not possible. Completion of partial credit through a Practice Endorsement does not guarantee placement in a Certification Program, therefore we encourage those interested in going through a Certification Program to apply early. For more information, please visit the prospective Certification Program website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - Registration Policies
When course participants register for one of our packages, we try to place them in the first class or training that is part of that series. This helps ensure that all prerequisites are met and also maximizes the possibility of meeting and developing connections with other members of the learning cohort. In some cases, this is not possible due to scheduling conflicts, emergencies, under-enrollment, and other unexpected events. In such cases, we work individually with course participants to transfer them to the next available course or develop an alternative learning plan if necessary. Thus it is important to recognize that registration for an individual course or a particular course package does not guarantee specific placement.
Practice Endorsements and Certification Programs are built into our annual calendar of classes and trainings. Some of them are offered four times a year on a quarterly basis, others are offered twice a year on a semi-annual basis, while others are only offered once a year on an annual basis. Classes and trainings that are part of a Practice Endorsement or Certification Program can be purchased separately or as part of a class or training package. If a package registration is selected, a 20% discount will be automatically deducted from any of the standard registration categories (general, group, military/veteran, student, social justice) at the time of purchase. Class and training packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and be completed within 12 months of the date of purchase (unless other arrangements are made). Packages cannot be retroactively purchased once sales of individual classes or trainings have been completed, so be sure to select accordingly.
Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - Final Conferral
For both Practice Endorsements and Certification Programs, each course participant must submit an application to receive the final endorsement or certification once all requirements have been fulfilled as this is not automatic. The application can be downloaded HERE
