CRC Exam Preparation Workshop

This workshop provides you a unique opportunity to prepare for the CRC exam and practice taking computerized tests similar to the CRC. The online learning format allows you to access material nearly anywhere and anytime Internet access is available.

We have found that many participants would like a longer duration of this course. We are now giving you access to this course for a full 6 months. A facilitator will be available for the first 8 weeks to answer questions and guide you thru the workshop. 

The workshop is offered before each CRC Exam.

Cost: $200.00

Course Syllabus 

Continuing education credits are not provided for this workshop.

We recommend that your registration for the CRC exam is confirmed before registering for this workshop. SVRI is not affiliated with CRC and cannot provide you with assistance in applying.

Rehabilitation Ethics

The emphasis of this online course is on real ethical dilemmas provided by people working in the field of vocational rehabilitation. Participants share an ethical dilemma and work through it using the relevant content provided in the course and the assistance of other participants. This approach allows participants to learn about other dilemmas faced in the profession and share their experience to help others. Participants also will explore their own values and perceptions of ethics to determine how that affects their ethical behavior.


  • Basics of ethics and ethical principles
  • Focus on the CRC Code of Professional Ethics
  • Ethical decision making models
  • A discussion of "microaggressions" to promote more culturally sensitive ethical behaviors

Participants will work through these three content areas which will be provided in writing or in interactive Flash tutorials. Discussion activities are all written. Most of the time spent on the course will involve writing responses to discussion activities and reading/responding to others' messages.

The overall objective for this training is to increase sensitivity to ethical problems that are work related and to enhance the practitioners' ethical reasoning ability. Thus the content of this course will focus primarily on ethical awareness and ethical reasoning.

Course Syllabus

To accommodate as many people as possible, we offer two options:

  • 5 hour option: This is for individuals who already have some ethics credits completed and only need a few more -$125.00
  • 10 hour option: This is for individuals who want to complete all of their ethics credits at once. This course fulfills CRC's entire ethics requirement - $250.00

Our Online Courses while still being accessible to individuals with disabilities,  frequently include video, audio, and interactive tutorials to avoid flat written content as the basis for the course and engage learners on a different level. Asynchronous written discussions facilitated by qualified professionals provide opportunities for practitioners to share their valuable work experiences with each other.  Activities are relevant to practitioners wanting to advance their skills. Course activities are asynchronous, meaning that they can be completed 24/7 as long as they are submitted by assignment due dates established in each course.  Participation in discussions is required and it is recommended that participants login at least twice a week to monitor the discussion.

Our staff is able to provide assistance to people new to online courses to ensure a good experience with the technology.   If you are new to online learning, please visit our Is Online Learning For Me? page to learn more about what to expect.

What are the online courses like?

These courses are developed specifically for working professionals and focus on direct applications for your work. Courses are asynchronous, which means there are no specific times to log-in; you can work on the course when it's convenient for you. They include hands-on learning activities and case studies to promote learning. You will have opportunities to interact with other training participants through written discussions and a course facilitator is available to provide feedback and assistance. Content is often provided in various modalities such as videos and interactive Flash tutorials to appeal to different learning styles. All courses other than the CRC Exam Preparation Workshop are pre-approved by CRC and CEUs through UW-Stout.
