Full California Curriculum
The curriculum we offer provides you with the training hours that fulfill the 270 hours of educational training. We can offer a discount with this full purchase, so either use the discount code we have previously provided to you, or please contact our office if you would like to discuss options.
The state of California lists 6 academic areas that are required to meet their standards. We've worked with them to create an approved package that focuses on these same 6 academic areas. Our curriculum, however, is actually a bit more than the 270 hours they require - 295 hours to be exact - and was developed to ensure that our students have the knowledge base to prepare them to work in the field AND to pass the credentialing exam when ready.
This curriculum will provide you with the basic training hours required to meet California's credentialing standards. This package DOES NOT include the additional 45 hours of training on clinical issues (our Practicum course). If you want to purchase both the basic educaiton PLUS the Practicum course together, please head over to that page, found HERE. If you wanted more details of our California program or if you wanted to download a copy of this curriculum you can find those details by navigating to the "Coursework" tab, above.

**IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE** There are four (4) courses in this curriculum that are delivered differently from our traditional coursework. Due to copyright restrictions, you will need to purchase either the hard copy or digital version of Carlton Erickson’s book "The Science of Addiction: From Neurobiology to Treatment (2nd Edition)," published by W.W. Norton & Company. Specific reading assignments will allow you to obtain course credits after passing a posttest.You may purchase the 2nd edition book from any resource, but we do recommend you consider purchasing directly from W.W. Norton & Company on their website (CLICK HERE) or from Amazon.com (CLICK HERE). With Amazon you can purchase a digital copy for use with their free Kindle application at a substantial savings. Check with your company as they might have something worked out for these courses and could have copies of this book in your library, but they will help you with that when you are ready.Please note: you will only need to purchase this book once, but can use it for all courses in the "Science of Addiction" series if interested. You can hold onto this book when you are ready for CEU hours as you can use it for the following series:The courses in this series based on Dr. Erickson’s book are:

Internet Format - Coursework that is available immediately via a downloadable PDF file (a popular online format that requires you to have the Adobe Reader program, or one similar, installed on your computer). Many websites already use this very user friendly file format, so chances are you already have a PDF reader installed on your computer. This format allows faster downloading, easier reading, and easier printing. All course materials will be included, as will the link to the post-test required for course completion. Access and downloading information will be immediately sent to the email address you provide at checkout. There is no additional charge for this format.
USB Flash Drive Format - Different computers, processors, ISP's, and software make it sometimes difficult or time-consuming to capture materials provided via the Internet. As a result, we've added the Flash Drive format to our list of options. With this format we will send you a Flash Drive by Priority Mail that can be used on any computer, laptop, tablet with a USB port. The drive will include a PDF copy of the course or courses ordered along with the test link needed to complete your course using our online test system.
