The Center for Learning (CFL)

By overseeing competency-based certification programs for staff working in the mental health field, CFL supports best practice and informs policy in the area of workforce development. In administering the Mental Health Rehabilitation Technician (MHRT) certification programs, CFL develops knowledge competencies, designs and implements quality assurance processes, and assesses workers' qualifications. CFL also collaborates with academic institutions and other agencies in Maine that provide education and training to ensure that mental health courses, programs and trainers meet standards outlined in the MHRT/C Procedural Guidelines and Trainer and Curriculum Standards.

Mental health workers with MHRT certification provide residential, community, and crisis services to persons with mental health needs throughout the state of Maine. This website contains information about the MHRT certification programs, the Mental Health Support Specialist training, and tuition reimbursement and workshop allocations.
