The CCPC provides the opportunity for all competent workers in the field of addiction and related fields, to be certified and recognized as Professional Addiction/Gambling Counsellors and Supervisors.
The Purpose of AGC Certification is to recognize those who have acquired a minimum level of training, skills and effectiveness as a Gambling Counsellor.
Applicants must have a degree in counselling (e.g. MSW), a minimum of 30 hours of gambling specific training which meets the Core Competencies and 20 hours work experience in direct counselling, either volunteer or paid hours, at a recognized treatment facility.
This designation is granted to those who are currently working in the addictions field but who have not yet completed the educational requirements and experience of a CGC.
After receiving the designation it is expected that the person will continue to attend workshops, seminars and courses that will help them to achieve full certification.
