North Central Accountable Community of Health is proud to partner with the Central Washington Recovery Coalition to release a brand new training opportunity in North Central Washington. Being a successful Recovery Coach Trainer is very rewarding and also requires a great deal of time, energy, and commitment.

The Recovery Coach Training will take place in two phases:
- The first phase is the standard 30-hour (4 day) Recovery Coach Academy (RCA). Once this is completed, each participant will be a certified Recovery Coach.
- The second phase is a 2-day Training of Trainers (TOT) workshop. Once completed, each participant will be able to teach the full 30-hour course, adhering to the program curriculum and objectives. Please note that each trainer will be required to provide a minimum of one training in the first year after becoming a certified trainer.
