Behavioral Health Aide BHA Training Center

The ANTHC BHA Training Center is authorized by the Community Health Aide Program Certification Board (CHAPCB) to provide training for Behavioral Health Aide/Practitioners (BHA/Ps). As we work to achieve this goal, we are guided by the following three priorities:

  • Comprehensive Training – a library of culturally relevant courses built specifically to meet the requirements of the Specialized Training Track for certification at the BHA I and BHA II levels and all courses on the Alternative Training Track for certification at the BHA I, II, III and Practitioner levels.
  • Accessible – most classes are offered via distance using self-paced, instructor led, or a combination of formats. Some classes are provided in-person only. The Training Center uses a quarter system and courses are offered on a rotating schedule.
  • Competency-based – courses are designed to meet the BHA curriculum requirements, develop practical skills and core competencies, and target reimbursable skills
