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, especially now.
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 children grow and develop to their full potential.
We are excited to connect our community to this wonderful ONLINE training program. This training will equip you to help children who are receiving behavior health services. The training will prepare you for employment through local social services agencies. The program can be started at any time and finished at your own pace.
You will complete 12 online modules then three, 4-hour live sessions, including the new ethics and boundaries training. Once the modules are completed, you will receive free online blood borne pathogen training and virtual First Aid & CPR training if you do not already possess those certifications. The entire training requirements will take about 45 hours. Registration is ongoing until June 30, 2021.
Any individual who will be 18 years of age or older upon completion of the course may register. Participants must have obtained a high school diploma/equivalency to register.
