Although the MTC is the highest level of certification, the CTC is for those who have established 12-Step literacy, understanding, and compassion. These designations represent the highest level of integrity and most importantly, fundamental knowledge. Certification, combined with personal qualifications and abilities, makes impressive credentials that give you a competitive edge to help others. Once certification is attained, re-certification is contingent upon each individual meeting good standing requirements and continuing educational requirements set by the Re-certification Committee. 15 hours of educational activities must be attained every year following receipt of the designation by attending or teaching relevant courses, writing professional articles and books, and attending educational conferences.
