Enjoy Your New BCTP-I or BCTP-II Credential

Once approved, you will gain access to your credential as a downloaded digital file for posting on your website, newsletters, directories, etc. The badge can be automatically placed on your social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter). You can also invite third parties to view your new credential on TBHI’s trademarked BCTP search engine

  • To add a telehealth cherry on top, you will be invited to create a formal listing in TBHI’s new Professional Directory, which will be free to you for the first year. The TBHI Professional Directory is heavily marketed through social media and will serve as an attractive page for potential employers and clients or patients to learn more about you, your services, and your BCTP Micro Certification.
  • Your BCTP Micro Certification badge will be prominently displayed on your profile, letting the world know that you have passed TBHI’s rigorous criteria
  • The directory will allow you to list many other features of your telepractice as well.
  • TBHI’s Professional Directory can serve as the cornerstone of your telepractice marketing plan.
  • No. You will need to complete the additional 6 hours of training with the Telebehavioral Health Institute. Any TBHI training obtained as a graduate student, trainee/intern, or as a licensed professional is acceptable.

The Board Certified Telehealth Professional Level I or Level II designations are valid for three years. Learners will be required thereafter to reinstate their credentials by completing 9 CME/CE additional hours from TBHI per 3-year recertification period to augment the original TBHI BCTP-I or BCTP-II Micro Certification.

  1. The fee for the TBHI recertification is waived until September 1, 2020.
  2. If you graduated from a TBHI Certificate program prior to March 2017, a minimum of 6-hours of additional TBHI training is required. You may select any course that you have not yet taken from this list.
  3. Although NOT available at discount, it may interest you to know that many previous TBHI Certificate holders have asked for an intensive, interactive, in vivo, skill-building workshop. That 6-hour training description can be seen here. Classes are forming now.

TBHI’s training has variable pricing, depending on your area of interest. An additional charge is levied if, for example, you initiate the BCTP process and request changes to your Micro Certification process after the initial purchase. The administrative change fee is $45.

Times are hard for many professionals. TBHI is your partner in telehealth excellence. If you are facing financial hardship prior to September 1, 2020, please propose an alternative payment plan and TBHI will consider your proposal. Please scroll to the bottom of this page and send us an email.

Yes, both BCTP MIcro Certifications are designed to accommodate the needs of both licensed and unlicensed learners. Further BCTP credentials will require licensure, however. (They will be announced as they are available.)

All previous TBHI Certificates were sunsetting on March 1, 2020, following an announcement in our TBHI Community news in December of 2019. The database page currently open to the public to verify your current credential does not show your name. Please feel free to drop back in at another time.
