Alcohol and Drug Studies Certificate of Achievement
The Certificate of Achievement is designed to provide students with skills necessary for employment as supervised chemical dependency counselors, as well as advancement toward the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP) and California Association of Alcohol and Drug Educators (CAADE). Students earning the certificate may also choose to continue their study toward an Associate of Science degree in the field. Past recipients of the COD Certificate of Achievement in Alcohol and Drug Studies have obtained positions as supervised chemical dependency counselors, locally and throughout California.
A minimum grade of "C" must be earned in all courses for the certificate. In addition, students will be required to have 75% attendance in order to apply the courses toward CCAPP certification.
