Following N.A.D.A.I.'S policy of inclusion rather than exclusion, we acknowledge the concept that experiential learning as an adjunct and extension of classroom experience is an educationally sound method of providing one's skill and professionalism. The mature professional adult realizes that many individuals in a position of making judgments on other's talents and abilities do so based on the level of formal academic training they have received, as demonstrated by the possession of a college or university degree. Thus they are denied raises, promotions, new jobs or the prestige they deserve. The N.A.D.A.I. credentialing committee does not do this and takes into account not solely college degrees, but life skills/ life learning.
Education is viewed differently today than ever before. New ideas and concepts are being introduced, and the method which a student is allowed to learn is far different than in years past. Through our many years in the business of recovery we have learned that many mature, self-motivated adults without college a degree have achieved at least the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree as a result of their life learning and previous academic training. Likewise, those holding advanced degrees but without formal credentials may find that, by using their life learning experience and academic training, they may be very close to qualifying for a valuable credential. Therefore, N.A.D.A.I. will review each individual applicant's academic and life learning experience with an eye towards granting the highest credential available while maintaining it's strict standards.
