Our community is looking for 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. As an integral part of the child’s treatment team, a Certified Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) has the opportunity to make an immediate impact while helping a child grow and develop to their full potential.
We are excited to connect our community with Woodfords Family Services for this wonderful training program. This training will equip you to successfully help children who are currently on a wait list for services and will prepare you for employment through local social services agencies. The program can be started at any time before registration ends on June 30, 2023 and finished at your own pace.
You will complete twelve online modules then three 4-hour live (in-person or virtual) sessions. Once the modules are completed, you will receive free online bloodborne pathogen training and child and adult First Aid & 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 equivalency) to become certified. No Discounts.
