Workforce Development Scholarship Opportunity

Montgomery County Alcohol Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) is offering scholarships to 25 people to become certified chemical dependency professionals. The scholarships are for any employee that works for an ADAMHS contract agency. The workforce development scholarship will pay for the 16 month, 12 semester hour program (four - 3 hour semester courses: SCC MHT 1130; MHT 1236; MHT 2137; MHT 2235). The series of courses is specifically designed by Sinclair Community College to meet the 180 hours of chemical dependency specific education required by the Ohio Chemical Dependency Professionals (OCDP) Board.  Students are responsible for purchase of books, supplies, OCDP exam and licensure fees.

Upon completion of MHT 1130, individuals will be eligible to apply for CDCA Phase 1 preliminary licensure.  After completion of all four (4) courses, individuals may be eligible to apply for mid-level to advanced licensure including the LCDC II, LCDC III, or LICDC based upon educational level and work experience.
