The Prevention Specialist Certification Board of Washington (PSCBW) website is for individuals who are interested in obtaining and maintaining their Certified Prevention Professional (CPP), an international credential, or Associate Prevention Professional (APP), credential for entry level professionals.
We hope the information will be helpful to CPPs, APPs and others in the substance abuse and violence prevention fields. Learn more about the benefits of obtaining a CPP or APP.
Please save the date for the next Washington Substance Abuse Prevention System Training (WA SAPST), which will be September 29, 2015 through October 2, 2015 in Yakima.
Updated Certified Prevention Professional Application
The PSCBW has updated its application to reflect changes made by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC). Please see the new application, which includes a broader focus on prevention.
International Certificates Available
The PSCBW issues certificates to CPPs and had also sent a free international certificate from IC&RC. Since July of 2012, IC&RC discontinued issuing free international certificates automatically to professionals.
If you're interested in receiving the IC&RC international certificate, please go the IC&RC website at http://www.internationalcredentialing.org/FormPR. The current cost is $25.
