      Since 1986, the Employee Assistance Certification Commission (EACC) has been responsible for the development and maintenance of the only recognized credential for advanced practice in employee assistance. The Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP) credential assures consumers and employers that they are receiving services from a knowledgeable professional with a specific expertise in employee assistance practice (White & Sharar, 2003). Since its inception, the CEAP has grown from a primarily United States-based credential to an internationally recognized certification, with versions of the CEAP exam now available in languages besides English (EAPA, 2015). As of September, 2015 there are over 2,000 CEAPS throughout North America and overseas. The international expansion of the CEAP now includes the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
