  • Yakima Area Arboretum 1401 Arboretum Dr Yakima, WA, 98901 United States (map)

The Prevention Specialist Certification Board of Washington (PSCBW) is pleased to provide this Washington Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (WA-SAPST) based upon a national curriculum developed by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) and further developed by the PSCBW through a contract with the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (DBHR).

This is the new Washington Substance Abuse Prevention Systems Training (WA-SAPST) which is being offered in place of the Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST). The WA-SAPST meets the training requirements for Community Prevention Wellness Initiative (CPWI) communities. The WA-SAPST was updated to include material relevant to prevention practitioners in Washington State. The main focus of the WA-SAPST is to train the participants in implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) within Washington State. Participants will be asked at the conclusion of the WA-SAPST to provide feedback regarding the WA-SAPST.

Participants must successfully complete a 4-hour on-line basic prevention training prior to being admitted to the WA-SAPST. Therefore, the participant must have access to a computer with internet capability. Registrations must include your preferred email address so your registration can be confirmed and so you can receive instructions to the on-line training, post-test and certificate of completion.
