IC&RC, the world leader in addiction-related credentialing, is accepting applications for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for its Criminal Justice Addictions Professional (CCJP) program. CCJP SMEs are addiction counselors working within the realm of the criminal justice system for at least two or more years.
Selected SMEs will be invited to participate in the updating of IC&RC’s CCJP Job Analysis (JA). A JA study is the methodical process of determining what elements of practice and knowledge are important to assess as part of a certification examination. It is the process that directly links an examination score to a specific job. JAs also ensure that examinations are valid, reliable, and legally defensible. To stay relevant to current trends and practices, a JA must be updated every five to seven years.
As part of the JA study, SMEs will participate in a focus group with IC&RC to delineate the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for competent provision of substance use disorder services within the criminal justice system. Participation will include a series of webinars with a final cumulative live meeting.
