CSAP's Prevention Pathways, Online Courses

The above are usually a good source for prevention professional training and education; however, they may offer training and continuing education unrelated to those needed for the Certified Prevention Professional credential.  Please refer to the following list (revised 9/2013) which shows samples of trainings and continuing education accepted in the past: Guidelines for Acceptable Trainings Rev  Sept  2013 final.doc (Word) and Guidelines for Acceptable Trainings Rev  Sept  2013 final.pdf (Adobe PDF).  In addition, since it is not an exhaustive list, the PSCBW would appreciate being notified about other sources.
