How Can Tobacco Treatment Skills Help You?

This certificate program will prepare you to deliver evidence-based treatment and promote system change to reduce the toll of tobacco on health.

  • For healthcare practitioners, you will obtain skills and knowledge needed to promote and treat tobacco dependence.
  • For health educators and those interested in health promotion, you will be equipped to debunk myths surrounding tobacco use and gain the tools needed to provide current evidence-based information.
  • For public health professionals, you will learn evidence-based and culturally sensitive systems and policy interventions to foster healthy communities, particularly among vulnerable populations.

This is an accredited program, so upon completion participants will earn a training certificate - the initial requirement for obtaining the National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice (NCTTP). See: https://www.naadac.org/ncttp
