GCCC

The Global Centre for Credentialing and Certification (GCCC), formerly known as the International Centre for Credentialing and Education of Addiction Professionals (ICCE), was established in 2009 in response to the long- standing global crisis of inadequate evidence-based programmes and a dearth of trained addiction professionals. The Colombo Plan, under their Drug Advisory Programme (DAP), embarked on this new initiative to develop, expand, and professionalise the field of drug demand reduction as an integral part of the global initiative funded by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), US Department of State. With a mission to train and credential individuals, GCCC plays its part in the overall goal to professionalise and expand the drug demand reduction workforce. To carry out that mission GCCC has three main functions:

  1. Curriculum development and updates informed by experts

  2. Training in collaboration with UNODC, OAS/CICAD, Governments, and other Education Providers

  3. Credentialing individuals with standardised exams and work experience
