Behavior Health Professional Certification Training


FREE Behavior Health Professional Certification Training

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. And the need in our area is great!

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 to this wonderful FREE ONLINE training program.

The online 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 3 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. Any individual who will be 18 years of age or older upon completion of course may register.

Linda Greer, the Director of Marshwood and Kittery Adult Education will advise and support students on their training journey. Linda has expertise in the BHP field.
