The Virginia Certification Board is designed to measure competency of behavioral health professionals.
VCB protects and safeguards the public and the consumers of behavioral health services through the certification of individuals.
VCB 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).
VCB is a participating member in IC&RC. IC&RC sets international standards for behavioral health professional competency and develops and maintains written examinations for each reciprocal credential offered.
