International Certified Gambling Counselor-II (ICGC-II) Application Instructions

Below you will find two sets of instructions for completing your application for ICGC-II status. This designation awards recognition to the commitment made to the counseling needs of the problem gambler and family. Prior to reviewing these instructions please make note that the steps are different for those individuals looking to advance to ICGC-II status from ICGC-I status and those seeking direct ICGC-II status (without previously having ICGC-I status).

NOTE: The following instructions are for individuals looking to advance from ICGC-I status to ICGC-II. If you are not currently an ICGC-I please scroll down for further instructions. 

ICGC-II candidates are required to:

      • Complete all steps and hold current status as ICGC-I.
      • Submit any update of documentation of bachelor’s degree or equivalent (with explanation and request for equivalency consideration).
      • Documentation of 60 hours of gambling specific training for ICGC-II. These 60 hours can include the initial 30 hours documented for ICGC-I.
      • Upon completion of your 2000 direct contact hours (ICGC-II), request two co-workers or peers to complete Forms C.1 and C.2 Colleague Evaluation Form (one for each co-worker).

      • An updated Confirmation of Employment Letter must be sent to the IGCCB by either the Director of your agency or the Personnel Department. This letter should state the dates of your employment and your official duties. For those in a private practice setting, send this letter on your official letterhead. Should this be a volunteer position the Director should indicate so in his/her letter.
      • Along with the above described forms and documentation include payment of $50.00 processing fee in the form of non-refundable check or money order by mail; or with credit card by calling the NCPG office at 202-547-9204.
      • For those working in a private practice setting, a previous clinical supervisor or a third peer may complete forms S.1S.2S.3 and S.4.
