Online Courses & Training

Online courses and training in the eight core competencies of Brief Action Planning (BAP).

Online Courses

BAP Professional Network now offers online courses in core competencies (BAP) and advanced skills (BAP-MI).

We recommend learners take both courses towards attaining clinical proficiency in self-management support and health behavior change skills across the full spectrum of readiness to change.

I. Core Competencies (with or without CME)

II. Advanced Skills

Note: Clinical proficiency requires practice, practice with feedback, as well as observed re-practice. There are many avenues to receive coaching and feedback. These three websites are sources for coaching feedback.
