What is the process for me to be certified?
  • Complete your application and submit with a partial fee of $100
  • A committee of certified members will review your application and notify you of your results within eight weeks.
  • Upon written approval of acceptance the balance of $200 is required.
  • Following receipt of payment, you will receive your certification certificate by mail, and will be legally entitled to use the Canadian Problem Gambling Certification, CPGC designation.
  • Initial approval certifies a counsellor for a two-year period. To ensure problem gambling counsellors stay current in their profession, all Canadian Problem Gambling Counsellors must meet the Re-Certification Criteria every two years to maintain their certification status.
