High schoolers earn certificates through Council program
Among the 25,000-plus users of Providers’ eAcademy® are several state high schools, through which students can earn certificates through the Human Services Credentialing Program.
Students at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical High School’s Community Health Services program are the latest group to earn these certificates. Bristol-Plymouth is a longtime participant in the Human Services Credentialing program, and some of its students currently hold co-op positions with Council member Crystal Springs, using what they have learned in the program. Council member People, Incorporated has worked with co-op students who earned their certificates through this program from Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School for more than a decade.
The credentialing program curriculum consists of core competency training in different service areas within the human services sector and is available to high schools throughout Massachusetts. Schools currently using the program include B-P, Diman Voke and Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School
