The Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST) is intended as an introductory level course; throughout the course of their careers, prevention practitioners will need additional and more advanced workforce development opportunities beyond the SAPST. The SAPST is a foundational course of study in substance misuse prevention and is intended for entry-level prevention practitioners working in states, jurisdictions, tribes, and communities; the training is also appropriate for professionals working in related fields. The SAPST is grounded in current research and SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework and provides prevention practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to implement effective, data-driven prevention programs, practices, and policies that reduce behavioral health disparities and improve wellness. 

As noted The SAPST is endorsed by the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) Prevention Committee as an IC&RC-approved curriculum. This endorsement provides assurance that the SAPST is applicable toward the education and training requirement for IC&RC’s Prevention Specialist credential.
