NJ LCADC/CADC Mandatory 3-Hour Legal Standards Workshop



If you are in your initial biennial L/CADC renewal period (meaning you were first issued your L/CADC between 08/01/22 – present), then you ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE! People in their initial biennial renewal period are required to attend a 6-hour legal standards workshop, which is NOT this workshop! This workshop is for those L/CADCs who have already taken the mandatory 6-hour workshop in their initial biennial renewal period and are now required to take a 3-hour legal standards continuing education workshop every subsequent renewal period. NJPN provides the initial 6-hour training. Again, this 3-hour legal standards training is for those L/CADCs who are past their initial biennial renewal period, and need the mandatory 3-hour legal standards training required during each ongoing renewal period.
Here is the licensure regulation that speaks to this requirement: 13:34C-5.2 Continuing Education Contact Hour Requirements. (page 40)
d) All licensees and certificate holders shall complete at least six required contact hours of a Committee-approved continuing education course in legal standards related to the practice of alcohol and drug counseling in New Jersey during the initial biennial period. Beginning August 1, 2018, for each biennial period after the initial biennial period, all licensees and certificate holders shall complete at least three required contact hours of a Committee approved continuing education course in legal standards related to the practice of alcohol and drug counseling in New Jersey.

July 12, 2024. 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Eastern Time Zone (Live, Interactive Webinar)

PARENTAL ADVISORY NOTICE: This Workshop Series Presenter runs a PG-13 Conference. Random cursing has occurred in the past. The presenter does his best to use outdated curse words that you have to Google to understand their meaning, like “tarnation” and “dagnabbit”. So, if you think a “muckspout couldn’t teach a hen to cluck” or if you find current curse words offensive … then DO NOT ATTEND!

DISCLAIMER: Management is cautioning that if offense occurs to you due to random (tier 2, not the really bad) curse words, then it is possible this is NOT the workshop for you. Caution! Presenter has sharp edges. This can be a very boisterous presentation. Laughing and learning has been shown to have certain side effects in less than 1% of the population. Side effects include professional confusion from laughing and learning, and mild to moderate irritability in some users. In rare instances it can lead to severe reactions, such as wanting to contact the authorities. If any of these have occurred previously, take immediate actions that may include, but not limited to, not attending this workshop/conference series! A good sense of humor is required in order to attend. You know your humor limitations; this presenter DOES NOT!

“I am thoroughly satisfied with this workshop. I don’t think I’ve laughed out loud so much in a workshop and looked forward to attending on subsequent days after the initial session. Excellent—and I’ve been to decades of trainers! I have attended supervision courses before and was a bit apprehensive that it would be repetative or boring, or both. I am so relieved that I learned new information.” – September, 2023

“This course was so well done! I was very impressed with Glenn’s method of delivery. Who knew a PowerPoint presentation could be enjoyable? Glenn utilized so many different sources of solid information to support his presentation, his sense of humor, and old school radio DJ voice really made the information communicated a great learning experience.” – July, 2023

“Glenn did an incredible job presenting the information in a way that was interesting and engaging. It will certainly be helpful in my everyday practice. I would attend any trainings done by Glenn. Zoom trainings can be daunting, and often I end up multitasking, but i paid attention during the entire full day training.” – October, 2022

This entire workshop was beyond my expectations!! I learned so much valuable information and was engaged throughout the entire presentation. Glenn Duncan should be the only one allowed to teach this course, as he can knowledge beyond his years. I wish Glenn Duncan could be every professional’s supervisor, as he is spot on. I love the information displayed during our breaks.” – July, 2022

“Glenn is simply one of the most knowledgeable and effective teachers I have ever encountered. He is brilliant, his knowledge is pertinent and up to date and he is so funny that your mind never has a second to wander. I learn so much when I take one of his workshops.” – July, 2022

“The presenter to made the content of a Legal Standards course very interesting and he used his LPC & LCADC as examples. The presenter had a great sense of humor too.

I enjoyed it so much more than I expected to and I will look for all courses he teaches.” – June, 2022

“The most useful part of this course was the combination of comprehensive information, and how it was delivered. Glenn was enthusiastic and informative. He had endless informative examples and was ready to answer any questions that came up.” – April, 2022

He is also approachable to ask questions and I feel individual needs are met in addition to the basic training material.” – February, 2022

“Glenn is literally the best instructor ever as he effectively uses his sense of humor and knowledge so that i actually retain the information. He keeps me very interested in the subject matter.” – November, 2021

“Glenn presents the material in a way that is easy to understand. He is very entertaining which helps to keep my attention. I would rank him as one of the best presenters ever.” – June, 2021

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Which licensures are these clock hours approved for?

This course is NBCC approved thus it is good for LPCs, LACs, LCADCs, CADCs, LMFTs, LAMFTs, LSWs and LCSWs. Social Workers you also accept NBCC approved courses as per your continuing education licensure regulations: 13:44G-6.4(c)(12) SOURCES OF CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS AND CREDIT-HOUR CALCULATIONS (page 19).

2) Will this workshop count towards the 3 hours needed for NJ LCADCs/CADCs in Legal Standards?

Why yes that is exactly the purpose of this workshop! Glenn Duncan has been teaching legal and ethical standards in the substance use field since 1999. Glenn is currently certified as a mandatory legal standards class trainer (Certification Board #003). I wanted #007, but alas … oh well the way I understand it is all the double O’s are lethal weapons.

3) Will this workshop count towards the one-time 6 hours needed for NJ LCADCs/CADCs in Legal Standards during their first renewal cycle?

NO! There is a separate 6-hour requirement for LCADCs and CADCs after their initial licensure (before one does their renewal of their brand new licensure/certification. After your first LCADC or CADC renewal you are required to take this 3-hour legal standards training every additional renewal cycle. NJPN runs this 6-hour workshop.

4) Will this workshop only be held as a live, interactive webinar?

The pandemic has shown us that live, interactive webinars provide us with the ease of being able to do continuing education remotely. We plan to go back to offering these workshops in both interactive webinar and live workshops formats. However, we will only do go back to live workshops when it is safe to do so, and when we feel enough people would support coming out to a live in-person workshop.

5) If the workshop is presented in both a live, interactive webinar and as an in-person training, will this workshop be offered in a hybrid fashion (e.g., open to either those attending in person or via webinar simultaneously)?

No! We currently do not have approval for the hybrid format, nor are we seeking approval for the hybrid format. Therefore, the entire workshop must be taken either as a live, interactive webinar or as an in-person live workshop, and will only be offered as such.
