Candidate Guides back to top

IC&RC has developed Candidate Guides to provide candidates with guidance for the IC&RC examination process. Candidate Guides provide background information on the examination development and administration process. They also contain exam content guidelines, sample questions, and examination reference lists. Each IC&RC examination has a coinciding Candidate Guide which can be found linked below:

Practice Exams back to top

IC&RC has developed practice exams to assist candidates with their exam preparation. Practice exams are available for the following programs:

 Examination  Number of Questions  Cost
 Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC)  50  $49.00 USD 
 Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC)  50  $49.00 USD

Please note the following:

  • There is only one version of each practice examination. Purchasing multiple exams will result in candidates taking the same examination with each purchase. 
  • The practice exam must be taken within 30 days of purchase.
  • After your payment is processed, you will receive a receipt.  This receipt will reflect the passcode needed to access the practice exam.
  • You have 60 minutes to complete the practice exam.
  • The practice exam must be completed once it is started. You are not able to resume at a later day.
  • You will be provided with a performance report after you submit your answers by ending the quiz.
  • Practice exams are non-refundable. 
  • Due to IC&RC Practice exam security, we do not permit candidates access to the Practice Exam questions, answer keys, or other secure materials related to the Practice Exam once the exam is completed
