IBC is pleased to begin using Dwolla to accept payments for certification and other fees, especially since Dwolla is a business based in Des Moines. We think you’ll like paying this way and know it will save you money from our current credit card payment method.
What is Dwolla? It’s a payment network that allows any business or person to send, request, or accept money for a small fee to the receiver only. It’s safe (you don’t have to provide any credit card info), it’s fast (just click on the “Dwolla” button on our website), and it’s easy (you can pay using your computer, tablet or smartphone). Even better, you don’t have to have your own Dwolla account (as with PayPal) and there are no fees charged to the person sending the money.
Effective July 12, 2013, we will no longer accept credit card payments. Instead, if you wish to pay your fees to us remotely, use the Dwolla button below. Simply fill in your payment amount, click the button, and follow the instructions.
In an effort to provide quality, low-cost trainings, an IBC committee has been setting up trainings around the state to help you get the hours you need for certification and recertification. In the past year, we sponsored several successful trainings, and more trainings are coming this year. Watch the website and your email for details on upcoming trainings. If you have suggestions for training topics and/or trainers, please forward them to us.
Cancellation policy: Refunds are allowed 7 or more days before the training with notice of needing to cancel registration.
Bath Salts, Jewelry Cleaner, Plant Food, Smiles, Crocodile; these are not your household cleaning products, happy things or anything on the Animal Plant Channel! The manufacturing and use of synthetic or “legal” drugs is on the rise. This training will provide an understanding of a variety of Synthetics and Club Drugs on the streets today. Are these things changing the process of addiction and how we treat our clients? Participants will review cases, video analysis and discuss ways this trend is impacting treatment today. Differential diagnosis, treatment interventions and evidence based approaches to help sustain early recovery will be provided. As a result of this training, participants will have an opportunity to participate in role plays, group discussion, video analysis and treatment planning.
To register for this training, complete the registration form and and mail it to the IBC office along with the $65.00 fee, or fax this form to the IBC office at 515-965-5540. Payment can be made with cash, check or Dwolla payment. When payment is received, or confirmation of Dwolla payment is confirmed, an email verification of registration for this training will be sent to you.
Beginning August 1, 2013, IBC will email applications for all credentials - rather than send them through the mail – in an effort to become more “paperless.” Applicants will need to submit their Request for Application to us via mail or fax, and may either send a check/money order with their application or pay online through Dwolla (see article above). Once the IBC office receives both the Application Request form and verification of payment, the application will be emailed to the applicant with their application number included.
We’re also working to convert applications and request forms to PDF format for easier completion and the ability to email it back to the IBC office. Be watching for more information about this in the future.
