International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC)

The Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) is a member of the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC), and the most active authority for professional substance use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery credentialing in Michigan.

MCBAP’s membership in the IC&RC requires a commitment to adhere to international standards that ensure competence in professionals providing substance abuse services. The IC&RC’s membership currently includes more than 77 boards in the United States, Indian Health Services, U. S. Military, U. S. Federal Court Administrators and numerous foreign countries including Canada, Sweden, Bermuda, Germany, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Japan, and India.

Certification is reciprocal with other IC&RC member boards that offer the above noted or equivalent credentials. Similar, older, non-reciprocal credentials are also recognized in Michigan, mainly for professionals who gained their credentials before October 2008.

You do have the ability to assign yourself as many applications as you wish. Keep in mind that if you assign yourself an application, it will continue to send you reminders for each separate application. 

The easiest way to use Certemy in this circumstance is to use the same email address for both. You can toggle back and forth between accounts in the upper right corner: 

Each tab will have a green dot on it, meaning each has been completed. If the tab has a clear, yellow, or red dot, that means the step still needs to be completed.
