1. Overview

The Rhode Island Certification Board (RICB) is seeking new members for its Board of Directors.  Interested candidates must be certified by RICB.  Board Member responsibilities include, but are not limited to: attendance at Board Meetings, participation in special meetings, and committees, setting policy, upholding high ethical standards and working with the staff of RICB.  Board Members are also responsible to ensure the Rhode Island Certification Board fulfills its mission and serves its professionals and the field to the best of its ability.

RICB meets four times a year in Cranston. The expectation for those interested, is that they are available to attend all meetings in person.

RICB is designed to measure competency of behavioral and community health professionals, and to protect and safeguard the public and the consumers of these services through the certification of individuals. 

RICB also supports the initiatives and legislation that would require behavioral health service providers to have competency-based credentials which meet or exceed the standards of the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) (www.internationalcredentialing.org).  RICB is a participating member in IC&RC.  IC&RC sets international standards for behavioral health professional competency and develops and maintains examinations for each reciprocal credential offered.
