IC&RC Updates CS Job Analysis

May 03, 2017 3:39 PM | Deleted user

IC&RC, the world leader in addiction-related credentialing, is pleased to announce its updated Clinical Supervisor (CS) Job Analysis.

A Job Analysis (JA) is the methodical process of determining what elements of practice and knowledge are important to assess as part of a certification. The JA serves as the blueprint for the examination and directly links an examination score to a specific job. It ensures that an examination is valid, reliable, and legally defensible. To stay relevant to current trends and practices, a JA must be updated every five to seven years.

An updated CS Candidate Guide with the updated examination content outline and ference list can be found here: IC&RC 2017 CS Candidate Guide

Changes to the content outline include:

  • Going from 6 domains to 5 domains
  • Removing the domains of Performance Evaluation and Administration
  • Adding the domain of Assessing Counselor Competencies and Performance

Examination Format and Length:

All questions on the CS examination are multiple-choice with four options. There is only one correct or best answer for each question. The examination contains 125 scored items and 25 pretest items. Candidates have three hours to complete the examination.

Dates and Deadlines:

The Clinical Supervisor examination will be updated to reflect these changes in the summer of 2017. More details on an updated examination will be provided at a later date.


Interested candidates should contact their local IC&RC Member Board for more information. Contact information for all Member Boards can be found at
