Category: TTS Training

The Mayo Clinic Tobacco Treatment Specialist Certification Training is an accredited program that consists of both online learning and a three-day livestream training focusing on the skills needed to effectively treat tobacco dependence. This course is delivered through a blended learning format in which instruction is completed first online through the Brightspace platform as a self-paced training, followed by a interactive 3-day livestream training. This course is adapted for individual learning styles, while allowing for a flexible schedule during the online component. The ten-module online training is available via Brightspace and may be completed at your own pace. Plan to spend approximately ten hours to complete all ten modules. The online learning must be completed prior to participating in the livestream training. The livestream training is a web-based interactive learning experience. Thus no travel is involved. During the 3-day training, Mayo Clinic staff will teach the course using virtual technology. You should expect to spend those days actively engaged in the course. If time is missed it could affect your eligibility to pass the course. Participation is required during the live training and instructors may call on participants for their input. You will need a working camera and microphone to properly participate and receive full attendance. Passing an exam and successfully completing both the online and livestream training components is required for Mayo Clinic Certification, and to be eligible to sit for the National Certification exam. Because many past participants stated how much they value the Mayo Certification, we will continue to offer Mayo certification with our training as well as re-certification. Faculty will include Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center physicians, Master's degree counselors, and education staff. A partial list of topics includes: neuropharmacology of nicotine, optimization of pharmacologic management, conducting a basic counseling session, motivational interviewing and other counseling approaches, and application of treatment of tobacco dependence to people with co-morbid conditions. This training program is designed for professionals already providing tobacco dependence treatment and for those with a strong interest in entering the field. Registration is limited in order to facilitate learning and maximize interaction with the experienced faculty. There is a clear demand for professionals in the field to have recognition of expertise in treating tobacco use and dependence. The Nicotine Dependence Center (NDC) has worked closely with the Association for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD) and others to establish standards for core competencies, training, and certification of tobacco treatment providers. The Nicotine Dependence Center Tobacco Treatment Specialist Certification Program has been accredited by the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs since 2010.
