Phil Valentine, CCAR Executive Director and RCA Trainer, stated "What a thrill it was to train people from 12 different states! I am especially glad that all these RCOs took us up on our offer and sent two trainers who can now deliver the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy©. Their attitude, sense of humor and remarkable skill made this "the best class ever!"
