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! We are excited to connect our adult education community with this wonderful ONLINE training program. The online training will equip you to successfully help children who are currently on a waitlist for 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 the course may register.
Linda Greer, Director of Marshwood and Kittery Adult Education will advise and support students on their training journey. Linda has expetise in the BHP field. The Marshwood and Kittery Adult Education staff can assist with tutoring, technology training, or with lending a device to take the class online.
