The FCB administers a two-phase certification program, which allows applicants to apply their knowledge and skills under intensive supervision while gaining competency on the job.
The first phase is to earn provisional certification, which requires applicants to meet education, training and testing requirements. A provisional credential is issued for a 12-month period. All CBHCM applicants must be employed or volunteering at an eligible site as a condition of provisional certification.
Phase two occurs during the provisional period. Provisionally certified behavioral health case managers must complete all on-the-job supervision and work experience requirements and submit an application for Upgrade to the CBHCM credential before the provisional credential expires.
When all requirements are met, the individual will be fully certified as a Certified Behavioral Health Case Manager (CBHCM).
