CERTIFYING AS A RECOVERY COACH

Certification and Assessment

On completing the final module of your training, you will start to move towards certification and assessment. This is an essential part of the training!

In the certification process we will support you in preparing yourself to work as a professional recovery coach.

Along with the certification and assessment process, we also recommend you start thinking about ongoing supervision with one of your facilitators or through the groups offered on Workplace. Taking care of your health and well-being is part of being an effective, and masterful coach.

The certification process should take you about 6 to 12 months depending on your commitment to the process.
