Here is the language from MBSACC Board on what topics CEUs from SAPST can count towards:

"With regard to the SAPST Training which was approved for 31 CEUS towards the CPS Certification, those CEUS can be applied to meet the 30 CEUS required in the category of Prevention Practice and Theory (PPT) and the additional 1 CEU can be applied in the Electives category.

"Because the 31 CEUS are made up of 5 CEUS that are Distance Learning, those 5 CEUS can only apply if the training was taken since January 1, 2017. If the training was taken prior to that date, then the person can use 26 CEUS in the PPT category for CPS Certification but not the five completed via Distance Learning.

"The CEUS in the ATOD categories are very specific and it is intended that the training focus to be on basic education /training in the specific five areas listed. If a person attended the SAPST training and wishes to use any CEUS in the ATOD category it would have to be shown that the training segment attended was specific to any one of those areas, and not just relevant to any of those areas."

Compiled notes from the day are still to come!
