Prevention Research Institute meets NAADAC's nationally approved standards of education developed for the alcoholism and drug abuse counseling field. Participants will receive 24 NAADAC approved hours for this event. It is the participant's responsibility to establish whether NAADAC hours earned in PRI events fulfill credentialing requirements of affiliated agencies.


Learners will earn the designated credits/hours upon successfully completing the training and will receive their training certificate after all requirements are completed (including event evaluation). Note, participants associated with accounts that have past due invoices will not receive certificates until balances are paid. It is the participant's responsibility to establish whether hours earned in PRI events fulfill credentialing requirements of affiliated agencies.


Full attendance and participation in the Prime For Life new instructor training is required to deliver Prime For Life. This includes participation in group practice teaching experiences with supportive peer and trainer feedback. Training is learning intensive so many participants find it helpful to set aside some time each evening for study and preparation for practice teaching. Previously trained instructors may attend a new instructor training as a refresher when space allows. Except for those attending as a refresher, all participants must attend the entire training to qualify for certification.

NOTICE for learners who work in a system for which there is State Coordination Office involvement: Depending on the specific state system, your State Coordination Office may receive notification of your participation in the training and whether or not you successfully complete the training. In addition, your State Coordination Office may receive notification once you successfully obtain certification to teach Prime For Life.
