BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL (BHP) TRAINING & CERTIFICATE PROGRAM - LIVE ONLINE
Looking for meaningful work? Our community needs individuals who want to make a difference in a child’s life. Children’s Behavioral Health Services are vital to Maine’s children with Intellectual Disabilities, Autism and Mental Health Disorders and their families. And the need in our area is great! As an integral part of the child’s treatment team, a Certified Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) can make an immediate impact while helping a child grow and develop to their full potential. We are excited to connect our community with this wonderful ONLINE training and certificate program. This training will prepare you for employment through local social service agencies and equip you to work with children who qualify for services. The program can be started at any time and finished at your own pace. You will complete 12 online modules and then three 4-hour live (in-person or virtual) sessions. Once the modules are completed, you will receive free online blood-borne pathogen training and Child and Adult First Aid and CPR certification. In just 40 hours, our free remote training program can get you certified and on your way to a life-changing profession. Must be a Maine resident and at least 18 years old with a high school diploma, or equivalent, to become certified.
Time Varies: Course is “At Your Own Pace” but must be completed within one year
