Behavioral Health Professional Training & Certificate Program - Live Online

with Jeffrey Carpenter, Your Host


Our community needs individuals who want to make a difference in a child’s life.

Children’s Behavioral Health Services is vital to Maine’s children with intellectual disabilities, autism, mental health disorder  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. Start any time and finish at your own pace.

You will complete 12 online modules and three 4-hour live (in-person or virtual) sessions, followed by 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.

Required: Must be a Maine resident and at least 18 years old with a high school diploma or equivalent to become certified.

Jeffrey Carpenter is the Workforce Recruitment Specialist for the State of Maine’s OCFS through Woodfords Family Services, responsible for recruiting behavior health professionals by networking with high schools, vocational schools, state colleges, universities, and adult education programs. He is here to help you through this opportunity by providing answers to questions and technical issues, should any arise. He is also a resource to connect you with service agencies once you have completed the training.
