The MHRT/C certification program is competency based, enabling those with a variety of backgrounds who have appropriate education, work experience and training to earn certification. The common denominator is a shared commitment to the fundamental principle that recovery from mental illness is possible. To qualify for the MHRT/C certificate, candidates must meet requirements using one or more of the following options:
1) Academic preparation (eligible degrees or courses must be from a regionally accredited college or university)
2) Practical work experience [related to providing direct services in the behavioral health field for adults and/or transition-age youth (16+ years old)]
3) Qualifying non-academic education and training in the competency domains
4) A Prior Learning Assessment
