VITERBO UNIVERSITY TO HOST AODA CERTIFICATION INFORMATION SESSION FEB. 5
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University will host an information session for its Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) certification program from 5–7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 5 in the Fine Arts Center Hospitality Suite.
Viterbo is one of a few colleges and universities in the state to offer an AODA certification program. The program is designed for anyone who would like to pursue a career as an AODA counselor. It is offered as a certificate program for graduate students and as a concentration in the Bachelor of Individualized Learning program. The program is being offered to help alleviate the shortage of professionals trained to work in the field. Classes will be held in the evenings for the convenience of working adults.
Debra Murray, Ph.D., will present information on AODA certification at 5 p.m. A question and answer session will follow her presentation. Anyone wanting information on the program is welcome to attend, and refreshments will be provided.
AODA counselors are important professionals at hospitals and health care providers, halfway houses, high schools, colleges, state and county agencies, and other employers.
