Behavioral Health Professional Training & Certificate Program - Live Online

with Jeffrey Carpenter, Your Host

$25

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) 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 this wonderful ONLINE training and certificate program. This training will prepare you for employment through local social services 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 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 & 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. This is a free course, the $25 fee covers administrative costs.

Jeffrey Carpenter is the Workforce Recruitment Specialist for the State of Maine’s OCFS through Woodfords Family Services.

He is here to help you through this opportunity by providing answers to questions and technical issues, should any arise.
