Prevention Specialist Exam Preparation Series

The purpose of this course series is to support preparation for successfully completing the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) Prevention Specialist Exam. The IC & RC was established in 1981 as a non-profit voluntary membership organization dedicated to ensuring professional standards in various health service fields. The series includes eleven modules that correspond to the IC & RC Prevention Specialist job domains. The training program consists of two major components: eleven online course modules and a written study guide. The study guide reviews the content of the online course modules by defining key terms introduced in each module and presenting sample test questions for that module.
