Credential Renewal Application: Online


Instructions

Your advanced and specialty credentials from Breining Institute demonstrate your commitment to providing quality care to your clients, beyond the basic certification or license you may need to work in your State or other jurisdiction.

You may also UPGRADE your current RAS and/or CCMI Credentials at the same time you renew, using this form.

If you prefer to pay for your renewal by check, please complete and print this form, and then send it to us by postal mail to: Breining Institute, 8894 Greenback Lane, Orangevale, California USA 95662


Renewal Fee Options:

  • ON TIME RENEWAL: $175

    If you are renewing late, you will pay $250 to renew all of your credentials. Renewal is for a two-year period from the date that we renew your credential.

Optional Discount for CE Completion:

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA COUNSELORS: Renewal of your internationally-awarded Breining Institute credentials is separate from the requirement for California SUD counselors to be registered or maintain entry-level certification with CADTP, CAADE or CCAPP.
