Behavioral Health Professional Certification

Calendar Jan 1, 2024

Children’s behavioral health services are vital to Maine’s children with intellectual disabilities, autism, and mental health disorders and their families. 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. This 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 two 4-hour live sessions. Once the modules are completed, you will receive free online bloodborne 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. Assistance with job placement is provided to anyone who completes the program. Assistance with technology may be available. Prerequisites: A high school diploma or equivalency. Proof of high school completion required, along with CPR/first aid certification.

Medical Terminology

$395

with Margit Ahlin, Certified Healthcare Documentation Specialist

Are you interested in working in a medical setting? Or do you just want to understand what your doctor is talking about? You can become fluent in a new "language" in just a few weeks!  This eight-week intensive course is a study of medical terminology, including word structure and formation, medical terms, their abbreviations and meanings, and correct pronunciation. Language from all body systems and major medical specialties, and well as terms related to anatomy, physiology, and major disease processes, will be covered. This course will teach you how to: Build thousands of medical words from prefixes, suffixes, word roots, and combining forms, many from Latin and Greek; define medical words by analyzing their parts; spell medical words accurately; pronounce medical words correctly; learn and recall common and acceptable medical abbreviations; and know how to use a medical dictionary. Medical terminology is a foundational course for anyone interested in becoming a medical receptionist, medical transcriptionist or secretary, or working in any healthcare profession. It is equally beneficial for those who want a better understanding of medical terms as they navigate their own or a loved one's care. No class the week of April 15 due to spring break. Financial assistance may be available. For more information, email Director Raye Leonard, rleonard@aos98schools.org.
