Free CBHT Course For Recently Laid-Off BHTs
Knowing that many BHTs have lost their jobs due to the shutdowns associated with the Coronavirus, The Academy for Addiction Professionals is opening 5 CBHT courses each week to recently laid off BHTs at no cost. The CBHT course offers the 30 hours of education necessary to apply for Florida Certification Board certification.
To qualify for the free program you must:
- Have been a BHT in your most recent job function
- Not have other addiction-related certifications or licenses
- Meet all other FCB CBHT requirements: click here
- Provide a signed letter on company letterhead from your most recent supervisor attesting to the loss of your job directly due to coronavirus-related cutbacks or shutdowns, and attesting to your exemplary work record.
Up to five online CBHT courses will be offered each week, at no charge, from March 30 through April 30 for a total of 25 courses. Students will be assigned their free course on a first-come, first-served basis once all of the above stipulations have been met and submitted. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
