Tobacco Treatment Specialist Certification Training Program September 2019

IF PAYING BY CHECK, PLEASE CONTACT Joyce Johnson at (614) 437-1530 or by email @ joyce.johnson@breathingassociation.org for further instruction.

 

The Breathing Association's TTS Certification program issues two types of certifications: (1) Continuing Education Units (CEU) for counselors, social workers, nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, etc. and (2) Provisional or Full Certification as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist. Both CEU certificates and Provisional or Full Certifications are only issued once the course is completed, and all required forms and payment are received by The Breathing Association.

Registration MUST be paid before attending the course. 

The Breathing Association’s Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Course (TTS) is appropriate for health professionals from many disciplines, such as nursing, medicine, psychology, dentistry and dental hygiene, social services, counseling, addictions medicine, respiratory therapy, and health education. This course prepares professionals to provide treatment for tobacco dependent persons in many clinical and community settings.

 

This course is accredited by Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP)

 

This course, like those offered by several other institutions across the country, has been designed to meet the  standards of the Association for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD) for training, competencies, and credentialing of TTS trainees; the US Public Health Service Guidelines for treating tobacco use, and evidence-based recommendations of authoritative groups in the field.

 

“Early Bird Registration” $1000.00 if registered by August 2, 2019  and payment received by August 9, 2019.

   Fee if registering August 3-August 23 is $1100.00. Payment must be received by August 30.

Requirements for Certification

 

Persons who attend the Tobacco Treatment Specialist course and complete the Learning Assessment will receive a Certificate of Completion of the course. However, full certification as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist is a process that goes beyond the didactic coursework we offer. Requirements to receive Provisional Certification or Full Certification are as follows:

 

Provisional Certification: Those who attend the course and complete the Learning Assessment, but have not fulfilled the patient care requirements prior to the course will receive Provisional Certification.

Full Certification: Those who attend the course, complete the Learning Assessment, AND provide proof of experience in providing tobacco dependence treatment will receive Full Certification.

 

Contact time in tobacco cessation patient care may be either prior to or subsequent to the Tobacco Treatment Specialist course. For those with a Bachelor’s degree or less, applicants should demonstrate a total of 480 hours of clinical activity related to tobacco use cessation. Persons with a graduate degree or post-Bachelor’s qualifications in a health-related field (e.g., advanced-practice nursing) should show 240 hours of patient care activity in tobacco cessation. Several types of activity related to cessation can count toward this requirement:

 

-Delivering direct patient care in tobacco cessation in group or individual counseling sessions, and/or telephone interventions and follow-up
-Teaching classes about tobacco cessation and related issues
-Preparation time involved with cessation sessions or training classes
-Supervision of other healthcare personnel who provide tobacco cessation services

 PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE STATEMENT OF WORK FORM ON THE RIGHT AND UPLOAD ON THE NEXT PAGE. 

 

Candidates for full certification should complete the requirements for patient care activity within TWO years of taking the Tobacco Treatment Specialist training course.
