You must complete the education requirements for licensure, prior to applying for the exam. Your transcripts should be sent from the college or university directly to the NDBACE office if you have not done so already.
The licensure exam is administered by the National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals (NCC AP), which is the credentialing arm of the National Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC). The exam you will register for depends on the license you seek:
  • LAC requires a passing score on the NCAC II exam
  • LMAC requires a passing score on the MAC exam
More information on testing locations and online options will be provided upon approval to test.
