Substance Abuse Counseling Certificate
The certificate program is a flexible option for people who already have a degree in social work, allowing them to earn certification in a specialized, in-demand field with as little as seven credits of additional classwork. “Alverno's program offers human services professionals a chance to be more marketable and have higher earning potential, while at the same time being better prepared and more qualified,” said Crystal Aschenbrener, chair of the Social Work department at Alverno.
For alumni who have previously completed a Social Work degree and have taken SW-200, SW-250, SW-300 and SW-400, only the remaining seven credits will be required.
