Non-Academic Training

This section was last updated on February 12, 2024.

DHHS-OBH is creating  standard non-academic training curriculum for the eight Competency Domains, using a train-the-trainer model for dissemination. As each curriculum is completed and available for a train-the-trainer session, trainers can apply.

An individual must complete a minimum of 30 hours of training in a Domain’s knowledge competencies to meet that Domain requirement.

Currently, seven of the eight Domains are available.

Individuals interested in taking a non-academic course must apply directly through the trainer.
Click on the choice below to expand that section.

Please Note: The Center for Learning does not accept registrations for MHRT/C Non-Academic courses. You must contact the instructor directly to register for their course. Since we list the information provided to us as we receive it, this list may not be inclusive.

NEW! For trainers of the MHSS curriculum and the MHRT/C non-academic domain training, there is now a page containing supplemental material, (link opens in a new page) shared by other approved trainers. If you have material you would like to share, please send it to cfl@maine.edu.

NA Trainer Standards V3, current as of March 12, 2021.

NA-Trainer-Application (last page of the above trainer standards).

NA Training Notification Form (Used by approved trainers to send notice of a non-academic training they are offering.)

Trainer Renewal Form (Used by approved trainers to renew their trainer certification for a specific Domain course.)

Delivery of MHRT/C Non-Academic Training Virtually (Used to receive approval to teach a Domain through video conference).

NOTE: You are required to attend a separate Train-the-Trainer session for each MHRT/C domain you wish to teach, even if you have applied in the past for a different domain.

If you have previously applied and were approved for another domain, you have met the core non-academic MHRT/C standards and it is not necessary to re-submit the same materials, e.g. official transcripts, reference letters, etc.  However, you must meet the trainer-specific requirements for each domain you wish to teach. 

For each additional domain you are applying to teach, please forward the following documentation:

  • Completed application form
  • Documentation of professional development over the past two years in content areas related to the applicable domain
  • One reference letter specifically addressing practical knowledge of content in applicable domain

Individuals interested in taking a non-academic course should review the course schedule.

The following instructors are approved to teach the Standard Non-Academic Curriculum for Domain 1 through December 31, 2025.
