    FAQs (frequently asked questions)    
    Q:  Which certification agencies are acceptable for the "current addiction professional" certificate requirement?
A:  There are many acceptable agencies located throughout the United States, as long as they are accredited, State-approved or nationally recognized. The drop-down list below includes many of the agencies, but there may be others that are acceptable.

If your licensing or certification agency is not included on the above list, please contact us for a determination, by sending an e-mail to us at College@Breining.edu that includes the following: 1) full name of the agency, 2) the web site address of the agency, and 3) which license or certificate that you hold from that agency.
 

   
    Q:  If I have a degree in addiction studies, do I need an ADDITIONAL 40 hours of supervisor courses?
A:  No. Your transcripts should show that you have completed sufficient formal addiction coursework to meet the education requirement.
 
   
    Q:  Do "continuing education" courses qualify for the 40 hours of clinical supervisor competency education requirements?
A:  Yes. The qualifying coursework must be obtained from a recognized provider of Continuing Education that provides documentation of that course work, which may include employer-documented in-house trainings. Documentation from the training agency (on agency letterhead or by formal certificates of completion of the training) must be included with the CSC Application to be considered.
 
   
    Q:  Do I have to do other courses if I complete the 40-hour CSEC offered?
A:  No. Completing the 40-hour on-line Clinical Supervisor Education Course (CSEC) satisfies the 40-hour supervisor courses education requirement.
