Studying for the CAC Exam? Read This!

 IC&RC

 

IC&RC, the world leader in addiction-related credentialing, is making changes to the Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) examination.

Since June of 2008, the ADC examination has included a written case presentation where candidates were provided with a case overview of a hypothetical client and asked 13 associated questions about the case. This long case study will be eliminated from the ADC examination effective February 1, 2017. The long case will be replaced with multiple smaller vignettes approximately 1-2 paragraphs in length with 3-5 associated examination question.

Candidates currently scheduled for an examination on or after February 1, 2017 will be taking the examination with multiple small vignettes.

The change from long to small case studies will not affect the scoring of examinations. As per usual, there will be 150 items on the ADC examination and the score range will be 200-800 with a 500 passing.

An updated Candidate Guide is available reflecting this change here.
