The Basic Certificate training is best for ​you if you work within an agency setting that is already set up to legally and ethically practice telemental health. ​Your technology has been chosen, vetted, and installed by professionals and perhaps even your agency’s Information Technology (IT) staff. Your legal office has approved a full informed consent process and document for working with clients and patients. Your clinical staff has developed a well-defined emergency plan based on local community resources and an integrated response system is in place if an emergency arises at the client/patient site. Your supervisors know what might go wrong and contingency plans are in place. Your malpractice carrier is on board and you have the appropriate malpractice policy in place. Your billing staff already knows the appropriate telehealth billing codes, place of service designations and telehealth modifiers. You ​just ​need ​some basic ​legal, ethical and clinical information about how to think about what has been set up for you. You will benefit by the fundamentals as to help you think through the issues to see the bigger clinical picture and how it all ties together into delivering responsible, professional care.

The ​​In-Depth Certificate training is best for ​you if you need to do all the ​above on your own, without an IT department, legal office, billing staff or clinical staff or supervisors to help you think through the issues. The In-Depth program will help you choose your technology, decide whether or not to use videoconferencing, email, text-messaging and other technologies; set up your virtual office​ and clinical protocols to ​follow current telepractice guidelines and learn how to get paid for your services.
