Behavioral First Responder Certification
Have you ever worked with someone going through a tough time and you weren't sure how to best support them?
That's why we created the
Behavioral First Responder.
The Behavioral First Responder course is designed for instructors, administrators, and counselors of all varieties that want to understand common behavioral issues and useful responses within the experiential education context. Our course will teach you overarching theories, models, and techniques adapted from the fields of social work, counseling, and psychology to help you understand why a student is demonstrating a particular behavior and some useful techniques that will help the student through their difficult moment.
There are no required textbook for this certification. However, if you are interested in the curriculum in textbook form, you can purchase Behavior and Group Management by Dr. Alan Ewert and Dr. Curt Davidson.
Successful completion with certification is based on 100% completion, an 80% or better on each assessment and a score of 80% or better on final exam. Alpenglow is committed to making reasonable accommodation to any student with special needs.
Recertification can be earned at anytime during the three years following your course. Recertification involves competing an additional 12 hours of continuing education on the BFR website.
Who Should Enroll?
The certification costs $249.00 and is valid for 3 years. After the 3 year certification period, you will need to come back to the website and complete an additional 12 hours to renew your certification.
