Registration

Registration

BHTEN is excited to announce that we are moving towards a new registration system through the DBHIDS Learning Hub. This exciting change will allow for on demand access to the zoom join links, training evaluations, course resources and materials, and certificates.

Effective May 2021, all non-paid (free) training registrations will move to the Learning Hub. Paid and private training registrations will begin to transition to the Learning Hub in September 2021. Our goal is having 100% of our registrations through the Learning Hub by December 2021.

Trainings will still be listed on our training calendar; however, registration links will direct participants to The Hub.  During the transition, push notifications will be sent out to registered participants via The Learning Hub.

All participants will be required to create a DBHIDS Learning Hub account, to register for trainings, access course materials, webinar links, evaluations, and certificates. Click here to create a Learning Hub account. The general access code is: LHAccess20.

Continuing Education

What is Continuing Education?

Many professionals, who hold licenses and certifications, seek Continuing Education Credits (CEs) and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to stay current with improvements in technology, as well as new laws and regulations that pertain to their specific fields and industries. The primary purpose of the CE and CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences. CEs and CEUs require the people that hold them to continue learning in their field, and ask them to take classes that meet their criteria for ongoing professional credentialing.

Continuing Education

Continuing Education
There are 5 types of Continuing Education credits that BHTEN is authorized to offer, depending on the class.

Social Work (SW) - Social Work (SW) Credits are generally required by licensed Social Workers to maintain their licensure.  The trainings that carry SW credits are co-sponsored by the Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. As a CSWE accredited program, Bryn Mawr College GSSWSR is a pre-approved provider of continuing education for social workers, professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists in Pennsylvania and many other states.

Pennsylvania Certification Board (PCB) - PCB Credits are regulated by the Pennsylvania Certification Board are generally requested by those who seek to become and/or maintain their status as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and/or a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) - BHTEN is approved by the United States Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (Provider #011190) to sponsor continuing education for Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners. BHTEN maintains responsibility for the programs and their content.

American Psychological Association (APA) - American Psychological Association (APA) sponsors continuing education for psychologists.  BHTEN is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. BHTEN maintains responsibility for the programs and their content.

International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) - BHTEN is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).  BHTEN complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices.   As a result of this accreditation, BHTEN is authorized to issue the IACET CEU.”

Each IACET CEU is equal to 10 contact hours.

For Example: 
BHTEN is accredited by IACET to offer 
.6 CEU (.6 CEU = 6.0 contact hours) for training participants who attend the full day

These CEU's are usually requested by the general training participant, and are recognized in a variety of professional and educational settings (such as Community College of Philadelphia).  If you are not sure whether your professional certification or setting accepts IACET CEU's, you will have to check with them.  We will be happy to provide whatever documentation they might need to demonstrate the validity of the CEU's you have earned.  However, we have no say in whether your educational or professional setting recognizes this continuing education type.

Co-Sponsoring a Continuing Education Event

Certificates and Transcripts

Certificates and Transcripts

Certificates and Transcripts
Training participants must complete the following, to receive CEUs and/or a certificate of attendance:

  • Be present for entirety of the training and/or workshop
  • Engage in all training activities (e.g.- breakout rooms, zoom polls, jam board, etc.)
  • Complete posttest, if applicable
  • Complete training evaluation at the end of the training for all in classroom session or within 7 days of distance learning

If 1 or more of these requirements are not met, it may result in the loss of credit hours and/or certificate eligibility.
The BHTEN Training Coordinator will review these requirements with training participants at the beginning and end of each training. If a posttest is required, it will be launched via a Zoom Poll at the end of the training or provided to you in paper format for completion for in classroom sessions.

Training participants will have 7 days to complete the training evaluation for virtual distance learning. In- classroom training evaluations will be collected at the end of the training. The BHTEN Training Coordinator will close the evaluation after 7 days for distance learning and submit the training attendance and evaluation data to the BHTEN Data Team, for generation of training certificates and CEUs and saved for record keeping purposes. All distance learning certificates of attendance and CEUs will be sent via email to training participants within 30 days post training, unless otherwise noted and if all requirements are met. All in-classroom certificates will be distributed at the end of the training class or series, unless otherwise noted and if all requirements are met.
Participants who do not complete an evaluation for CEU certified trainings within the timeframe can receive a certificate of attendance, free of charge, or request for an extension to complete the evaluation. Participants who do not complete an evaluation for non CEU certificate trainings can also receive their certificate of attendance upon request and after their attendance is verified. Evaluation extensions include a $10 service fee. Participants that have lost their CE Certificate can request a duplicate for a $10 service fee.
BHTEN is responsible to ensure educational records are current, accessible, and confidential. Requests for learner records, including transcripts or duplicate certificates and evaluation extensions, must be in writing using the BHTEN “Certificate/ Transcript and/or Evaluation Request Form”. This form is downloadable by CLICKING HERE.
