Certified Corporate Recovery Coach (CCRC)

The CCRC credential provides graduates of our CPRC training program, the opportunity to demonstrate to organizations around the world that they have attained a high level of competency as a coach. Therefore, giving an organization assurance that the coach has the skills to coach their team members effectively and professionally.

Coaches who hold the CCRC will carry a credential indicating the IAPRC's (International Association of Professional Recovery Coaches) highest level of confidence in you as a professional recovery coach. You also will have the confidence to market yourself to corporations, businesses or anywhere in the marketplace you may find a recovery coaching niche’.

Beginning in 2022, Coaches that earn the CCRC credential, will have the opportunity to contract with ICARE (International Center for Addiction Recovery Education) who will be able to market your services to potential corporate clients. ICARE will market individualized Professional Recovery Coaching services as part of ICARE Workforce Solutions products and services. You will also be listed in our Coach Directory as a CCRC coach.

Let your skills, knowledge and abilities go before you to open new doors of opportunity.

What’s involved:

Verification of coaching skills occurs by way of a formal review process with a Session Reviewer. A coaching session submitted for review must demonstrate all the core coaching competencies (derived from International Coaching Federation) that were taught in the Live Skills portion of the CPRC program. *If you participated in a Live Skills Practice Group prior to Aug 2021 you may need to obtain an updated copy of the Rubric. Please reach out to us at info@recoverycoachtraining.com

The formal review process requires the coach to upload a 30-40 minute coaching session (start to end) in video format, where both coach and client are visible on screen along with an accurate transcript of the dialogue. The session will then be reviewed and scored against the core competencies. View Example

A successful submission will demonstrate all competencies on the scoring rubric within the 40-minute time frame. During the time of upload, the coach will also schedule a private 1:1 meeting with a Session Reviewer who will provide feedback on the session; sharing areas of strength and opportunities for growth. You will also be given access to a 90-minute video training on Addiction Awareness in the Corporate Workplace to complete.

Should the submission reveal that the coach needs to focus on developing their skills further; the Session Reviewer will share feedback and ideas for growth that support the coach to do so. This may include but is not limited to ongoing practice or private mentorship (for a fee) with an ICF/NBHWC certified coach to support the coach in attaining the competency level needed for a successful submission.
