The Virginia Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST) Registration is Open!

The Office of Behavioral Health Wellness and OMNI are excited to announce an offering of the Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST) (Virtual via Zoom).

SAPST provides an Introduction to the fundamentals of substance abuse prevention based on the current knowledge and practice in the field.

This is normally a three-day in-person training; however, due to COVID limitations, we are offering this training online over a several week period including some assigned work between sessions to decrease required in-webinar time.

When you register in the EventBrite system, only the first date of training will be listed; however, it is required that you attend All sessions and complete assigned work in between sessions to receive a certificate of completion.

All of the training days will be from 10am – 1pm EST and will occur on the following dates. Please mark your calendar for all dates upon registering:

Dates:     April 13, 15, 20, 22, 27, & 28 (6 Sessions)

Time:      10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (3 Hours) EST

Registration close date:     March 29, 2021 @ 5:00 p.m.

In addition, there is a required self-paced pre-training course that will take several hours to complete at your convenience prior to the virtual training. The Deadline for completion of this portion will be Monday, April 12th at  5:00 p.m.  You will receive more information on accessing this training on or around March 30th.

***If you have already completed this pre-Course (worth 5 hours of credit) and have your certificate to show for it, then you do not need to repeat this course prior to the virtual training starting on 4/13.
