Important New Degree Requirements for CAP students
As of July 1, 2015, the Florida Certification Board modified one of their main qualification criteria for the Certified Addiction Professional (CAP) certification. Prior to July 1, applicants needed to hold a bachelor’s degree in any field. The requirement has been narrowed, now requiring a bachelor’s degree in a related field.
Check out a list of what is considered a degree in a related field.
Applicants who submitted their information before the July 1 effective date are grandfathered into the prior requirements.
Of course, those who do not have a bachelor’s degree or who do not qualify for the new requirements can still obtain the Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC) certification if they qualify.
