Behavioral Health Professional Training & Certificate Program - Live Online

with Jeffrey Carpenter


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

Children with intellectual challenges, autism, and mental health disorders in Maine as well as their families depend on children's behavioral health services. And there is a huge need in our area! A certified Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) is an essential member of a child's treatment team and has the chance to have an instant influence while assisting children in reaching their full potential.

Gain the knowledge necessary to work with children who need services thanks to this program, and also prepare yourself for employment with local social service organizations. Start whenever you choose, and go at your own pace.

Complete 12 online modules and three live, four-hour sessions, after which you will receive free online training in bloodborne pathogens and certification in child and adult first aid and CPR. Our free remote training program can get you licensed and started in a career that will change your life in just 40 hours.

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. He is responsible for recruiting Behavioral Health Professionals throughout the state. Jeffrey will be your host throughout this opportunity by providing answers to any questions that may arise.
