Continuing Education


      IC&RC is pleased to announce the development of practice examinations for our Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) and Clinical  Supervisor (CS) examinations.

      Practice Exams were developed to mimic  IC&RC’s Computer Based Testing platform to  enhance a candidate’s preparation  experience. Candidates have 60 minutes to  complete the 50 question practice exam. At the  completion of each practice exam, candidates  are provided with a score report detailing their  performance based on the various content  areas of the examination.

      Practice exams are just one of the many  resources available to candidates preparing  for their IC&RC examination. For more  information on practice exams and other  preparation materials, please visit the Exam  Preparation page of IC&RC’s website.
