The purpose of prevention certification is to recognize and ensure that substance abuse prevention practitioners meet competency standards established by the International Certification Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) and the New Hampshire Prevention Certification Board.
The Prevention Certification Board of New Hampshire is funded by NH DHHS Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services.
Please see our new page for CPS CEU’s for trainers/organizations interested in obtaining Certified Prevention Specialist CEU’s for workshops/trainings you are hosting.
If you have information you wish to submit to The Prevention Certification Board of New Hampshire’s website, please first review the organization’s dissemination policy and then send to email@example.com.

The IC&RC Board has notified the NH Prevention Certification Board
of the following ruling in Dec ’09:
IC&RC Member Boards may certify those outside their jurisdiction ONLY if the Member Board in the candidates jurisdiction does not offer the particular credential the candidate is seeking.
This will allow us to certify those professionals in VT and ME who do not currently have a CPS Certification process in their state. Welcome to the NH Prevention Certification website!
