CYC Certification

Child and Youth Care Worker Certification

 

CERTIFICATIONS & RENEWALS


OVERVIEW

The CYC certification is a national credential for child and youth care work practitioners. It is based on a three-tiered system beginning with Entry Level and includes Associate and Professional Levels.

CYC certification allows practitioners to demonstrate their development as professionals and participate in true career development. Over time, practitioners can combine in-service training, formal education and work experience to qualify for increasingly advanced positions. Or they can continue to work in the same setting with the ability to meet a wider range of youth needs.

Congratulations Indiana- there are currently 275 certified practitioners in our state! (See the list of Indiana agencies who employ certified youth workers.)
