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. This online training is Free. 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, participants that do not already possess CPR certification will be required to complete either in-person or blended Child & Adult CPR/FA training. Grant funding will cover the cost of the training (up to $100). Woodford’s offers several training times per month at our Westbrook location.
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, the Director of Marshwood and Kittery Adult Education will advise and support students on their training journey. Linda has expertise in the BHP field.
