How Did We Create the Exam

We assembled a team of experts in addictions and First Nations culture and healing who volunteered their time to assist us in the development of the first certification exam for Indigenous addictions counsellors in the world. While this is a major undertaking, we are confident that in the end we will have something of extraordinary value that is culturally relevant on all levels. We put in place a process to field test the questions with First Nations addictions workers and students before pilot testing the exam electronically. We will continue to update this page as the process continues. If you have any questions about the development of our certification exam, please contact
