Curriculum Review

Curricula Review Committee

The CACCF Curricula Review committee consists of faculty and from time to time other professionals experienced with curricula development and delivery at a post-secondary level. All curricula reviewers are experienced faculty trained in curricula development and reviewing at recognized post-secondary educational institutions. Its purpose is to review curricula to ensure the content meets the requirements of the educational competencies (skills and knowledge) of the various certifications offered by CACCF.

Affidavits will be signed by each reviewer prior to the review to ensure confidentiality of course/program content and to guarantee that the content will not be compromised or shared with other institutions. Reviews may be done for individual courses or entire programs. Fees will be based on course &/or program length.

Once the curricula meets the requirements the committee recommends that the CACCF board of directors recognize and endorse the courses&/ or program submitted. Once that is done the program educational institution and program is sent a letter of approval, a certificate of approval and added to the CACCF Resources section of our website.

Purpose of a Curricula Review

To review curricula submitted by recognized post-secondary training institutions with a primary focus on addictions and mental health to ensure that they meet the criteria/competencies required for various IC&RC and CACCF certifications.


All training programs from such institutions as universities, colleges and technical institutes must result in a recognized credential such as a certificate, diploma, degree, post graduate diploma/certificate. All courses within the programs must have formal assessment/evaluation components with formal recognized transcripts containing final marks upon completion.

Upon review of the curricula the results will be sent to the institution indicating whether or not the course/program meets or exceeds the requirements or will provide feedback as to what is needed to meet the requirements.

Upon successfully meeting the requirements CACCF will also provide an official certificate for the institution and post their institutions contact information on our website.

Under no circumstances will CACCF be responsible for the delivery of the curricula, provide comparisons of curricula or comment on PLAR or transfer of credit between institutions. That is the function of each institution.

Reviews will be required every 5 years. Institutions will be notified in advance of their renewal date.
