The Indonesian National Trainers were trained on Curriculum 1 & 2 and hence needed to undertake examinations to be credentialed through ACCE. The ACCE I (Basic Level) Examination was conducted for the Indonesian National Trainer and the Board members of the Indonesian Certification Board in the afternoon of 6 June, 2012. About thirty candidates took part in the examination.

The tests would be scored by the PTC and those who qualify in the exams would be awarded with the ACCE credential “International Certified Addictions Counsellor I” (ICAC I). The Credential will be valid for 2 years and upon its expiry, the candidates can apply for re-credentialing.
