People who are seeking Certification will need to fulfill requirements in three areas:

To document your Educational hours, NET Institute provides you with official Certificates of Completion you can download and print out immediately when you finish each course. You will submit copies of your Certificates when you fill out your official application to the certification board in your state or region. Your Certificates of Completion will include your name and completion date, plus name of course, subject content area and the hours awarded as CEUs or Continuing Education Units.

Work Experience:

Keep good records of your work experience and dates that align with the certification board of your choice. The length of time you must document depends on the level of the certification you are seeking

Clinical Supervision:

Typically you can arrange to have this type of Supervision at your place of work. Clinical Supervisors must meet certain requirements specified by the certification board of your choice.


We recommend you visit the website of the certification board of your choice and download their requirements so you can begin with the end in mind and track your progress in meeting their requirements.

Addiction Certification Boards have similar requirements, but they may also have their own unique required hours in a certain area like HIV or Ethics.  Students who want certification need to check with the Boards that have oversight in their State or Country. We advise that you do your research ahead of time.
