Our Vision: To ensure an exemplary, professional prevention workforce.

 

The mission of the PSCBW is to conduct certification of prevention professionals, to uphold
ethical standards, and to promote professional development and growth.


The Prevention Specialist Certification Board of Washington (PSCBW) was established March 6, 2002 as a Washington State non-profit corporation and is a member board of the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC). The PSCBW became a tax-exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(6) effective May 15, 2010.
 
As a professional trade board, the PSCBW conducts a peer review process for:  (a) certification of prevention professionals for the Certified Prevention Professional (CPP) and Internationally Certified Prevention Specialist (ICPS) credentials; (b) renewals of individuals who have obtained their CPP/ ICPS credentials; and (c) recertification for those who have had their CPP/ ICPS lapse but are interested in reapplying.
