Behavior Health Professional Certification Training


with Woodfords Family Services

Calendar Jan 1, 2024

Rolling Admissions/Self-Paced:

Our community is looking for individuals who want to make a difference in a child’s life.

On behalf of Maine’s children with special needs and their families, we’d like to thank you for your interest in becoming a Certified Behavioral Health Professional (BHP)! Children’s Behavioral Health Services are vital to these children and their families and the need is great.

As an integral part of the child’s treatment team, a BHP has the opportunity to make an immediate impact while helping a child grow and develop to their full potential. The BHP Training is offered as a blended course which consists of 12 on-demand online modules, including pre/post-tests, and an 8 hour Live Day (offered in-person and virtually) with a Certified BHP Instructor. Learners must complete all 12 online modules prior to attending a Live Day session.

Thanks to funding being provided by Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services, we are able to offer the training free of charge through December 2023.

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