The Value of IC&RC Credentialing: Prevention Certification provides public protection by ensuring that prevention services are provided in an appropriate, ethical manner using the latest evidence-based practices. It requires prevention specialists to demonstrate competence through a rigorous credentialing and examination process that promotes personal and professional growth, increased recognition, and professionalism of the field. Unified by adherence to the highest standards of quality and integrity, prevention specialists holding an IC&RC Prevention Specialist certification have created an international network of prevention specialists with worldwide recognition and respect.
