CATC Exam Application and Approval Procedure
Certified Addictions Treatment Counselor CBT Exam
CAADE is proud to offer Computer-Based Testing for the CATC Exam at nearly 80 locations in California and in many locations throughout the United States. If you have earned your certificate from a CAADE approved college program (or equivalent as approved by the Certification Chair), you are eligible to take the CATC exam. Passing this Exam does not equate to being certified. Please look at the certification area which discusses all that is required for obtaining an Initial CATC.
CATC CBT Exam procedure beginning February 1st, 2012: Send in your Application/Approval form and required documents (see form link below). (Do not send payment with your application). When you are deemed eligible to take the CATC exam, CAADE will email and/or phone with the contact information for Comira, the company that facilitates our testing. The fee for the exam is $125 for CAADE registrants/members, $225 for non-members ($100 payable to CAADE with the application; $125 to Comira). Comira will collect the testing fee (credit card only) and you will be able to choose a convenient time and place to take your exam (Comira accepts money orders but payment by money order will delay your exam testing date). In the event a candidate does not pass the exam on the first attempt, there will be a 30 day waiting period before a retake may be attempted. The Certification Committee will contact these applicants with details regarding additional exam preparation assitance.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing your (CATC-i) intern certificate.
