What We Learn
When you start out as an administrator of a substance abuse program, you need to get up to speed quickly. As you advance, you still need acceleration: more information, more knowledge about technical, administrative and regulatory areas. As you assume a senior position, you need to teach and write about what you know.
|SAPAA specializes in education. SAPAA's national standards are recognized as the credential for the substance abuse testing and program management industry professional.
