How to Select a Vocational Rehab School
Many employers require vocational rehabilitation counselors to be certified, and graduating from an accredited program is a prerequisite for certification. This certification, which requires passing an examination, is available through the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC).
Consider the following when also looking for vocational rehab schools:
- Students seeking certification should enroll in vocational rehabilitation programs accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE).
- Many schools have on-campus vocational rehabilitation centers where students can intern or work, since hands-on, practical experience is an integral part of any vocational rehabilitation program.
- Because vocational rehabilitation programs are typically offered at the master's degree level, students may want to consider undergraduate training in related fields, such as sociology or psychology.
