A minimum period of one (1) year sobriety (if the student has a history of addictions) and 18 years of age or older are requirements for all persons attending Nechi Institute. All students must abstain from the use of alcohol and illicit drugs throughout their training experience. We ask students and sponsoring agencies for their continued support regarding this important criteria. Our concern for those students sponsored with less than the minimum required period of sobriety is they may be in more need of treatment than of training. We would not be able to meet our goals or those of the sponsoring agency to train addictions counsellors.
Students applying for Advanced Counsellor Training are required to complete an interview questionnaire.
New and returning students are required to complete all steps of the application process. Acceptance into Nechi Institute programs and courses will be determined based on the review and assessment of information from one or all of the following sources:
