For over 40 years, the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) has set the national standard for delivery of quality rehabilitation counseling services through its nationally accredited and internationally recognized Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) certification program.
A Unique Skill Set
CRCC recognizes that rehabilitation counselors are the only professional counselors educated and trained at the graduate level specifically to serve individuals with disabilities. This includes an extensive knowledge of all aspects of disability as well as an in-depth understanding of critical considerations such as assistive technology and employment law. Unlike other counseling professionals, rehabilitation counselors are uniquely qualified to help individuals with disabilities acclimate into the workplace, and to help employers make a workplace more receptive to individuals with disabilities.
CRC Certification: It Makes a Difference
What distinguishes the CRC from other counseling professionals? The CRC designation represents an advanced level of specialized, graduate education and training. CRCs have a commitment to ethical practice. CRCs engage in lifelong learning. Rehabilitation counselors who have earned the CRC designation possess a marketable and valuable credential that distinguishes them from other counseling professionals. CRC certification also establishes a recognizable point of differentiation with employers and clients, which promotes consumer confidence and protection in the workplace.
