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.
