Just a quick post to give you an update on the improved online review for the IC&RC/LCDC exam for substance abuse counselors. First of all, you can join the class at any time; all you need to do is register and you will gain access within 24 hours from the moment you submit your payment. You have three options to choose from:
This option is for those of you who have been studying and preparing for the test for at least three months and just need a quick comprehensive review before taking the test. This is also a good option for those of you who have failed the exam once, but your score was pretty close to the passing score.
This is a good option for those of you who have been in the field as substance abuse counselor interns for many years, but have never attempted to take the certification exam. If you graduated 5+ years ago and need a refresher on the theories of counseling, pharmacology of addiction –drugs of abuse and their effects on the body– motivational interviewing, etc., this is a good option for you. It will give you plenty of time to review all the concepts that you already learned back when you were in college and will help you to relate the theory with the practice.
This is a good option for those of you that have failed the exam more than twice. If you are on your last opportunity to take the exam, it might be a sign that you need to to prepare better for the test and really focus on what is included in the exam. Remember that we can only take the exam four times and it must be completed within five years from the date of registration for LCDC I status. If you are starting to develop anxiety about failing the exam again and it just seems more confusing every time, this subscription will provide you with the guidance and practice that you need.
New! Five-week Subscription + Download PDF Notes (No Shipping)
Get access to the online materials: Video-lessons, learning objectives checklist, slideshow presentations, and more, PLUS access to my blog posts on the topics for the certification exam in PDF format for you to download and print, so you can make your own notes and highlight key concepts.
What this online review is.
This online review is a self-study online class where you access the materials at your convenience and study at your own pace. Registered participants have the option to schedule a coaching lesson with me and together we can review specific material. This online review was created in a virtual learning system very similar to Blackboard, Canvas, and Coursera. Participants have the option to interact with other registered users through the discussion forum.
What this online review is not.
This online review is not a traditional online class with video-lectures, assignments, grades, quizzes, attendance, etc. This online review does not offer a certificate of completion nor CEUs.
Why you have to pay for it.
Unlike the blog, this online review was carefully put together after I took and passed the LCDC exam. Although it includes many of the articles published and shared for free on my blog, it also includes notes and material exclusively for the exam; before taking the exam I studied and read all kinds of information that I thought was going to be part of the exam and, at the same time, forgot to cover some material that was included on the exam. After taking the exam I learned the difference between important information, but irrelevant for the exam, and important information that was relevant and totally included on the LCDC exam. I also take the time to maintain the online review material by replying to comments, answering questions about the material, and improving the content for more clarity, based on the participants feedback.
This online review is that, a review. It is not an official study guide and that is why you pay an affordable price. The official study guides as well as the workshops could be not only expensive and inconvenient, but also packed with information that is not useful or clear. When you subscribe to the online review, you have access to the information 24/7 during your subscription, and you can access it from any computer (as long as you have your access code); you can print out some of the information, and you can contact me for feedback and coaching on some of the materials, including the Case Study.
If you think this online review is a good option for you…
The next two-week session stars on June 24.
Dear subscribers and followers,
Thank you for following my blog. When I started the LCDC Exam review blog, I only had one thing in mind: to share what I know and what I am learning. It has been a pleasure and a lot of fun. Today, LCDC Exam Review is being read all over the world and I have subscribers from countries I didn’t even know existed!
I want to express my special gratitude to my main contributor, colleague, and friend, Yvette McBride Thomas, who has been a great support from the moment LCDC Exam Review started. In addition to being a full-time student and working full time, Yvette has made the time to submit valuable information on counseling, substance abuse treatment and prevention, and several other topics related to the substance abuse counseling field. She is very professional, highly reliable, and proactive, and I am very glad and honored to have her as part of this project. Thanks a lot Yvette, for all your support.
LCDC Exam Review wouldn’t be what it is today, without my subscribers and followers, and all the wonderful people behind WordPress. To all of you, wherever you are today (New Year’s Eve)……
I look forward to sharing this project with all of you and new followers, in 2013.
