Behavioral Health Technician Program
The Training Fund’s 9-month, part-time Behavioral Health Technician (BHT) certificate program prepares students to work in behavioral health fields including mental health, development and intellectual disabilities, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Program completion qualifies BHT graduates to enter the Associate’s Degree in Health & Human Services Program at Philadelphia University.
Collegiate Partnership Program
The Training Fund’s partnership with Philadelphia University connects the Fund’s BHT program with Behavioral Health Certificate and Associate’s Degree programs at Philadelphia University. The Partnership creates three steps allowing behavioral health workers to move up their career ladders through collegiate study:
Step 1: Behavioral Health Technician (BHT) Program at the Training Fund
Step 2: 30-credit Behavioral Health Collegiate Certificate Program at Philadelphia University
Step 3: Associate’s Degree in Health & Human Services at Philadelphia University
Graduates of the Philadelphia University Associate’s Degree program are eligible to apply for admission to the Philadelphia University Bachelor of Arts degree program in Behavioral Health.
