We don’t have to tell you the impact of proper training on your confidence, competence and standard of your client care.

Teletherapy and telehealth training is no different.

  • No more anxious tailspins wondering if you’re “doing it right”
  • No more claim denial headaches from miscoding
  • No more panic-induced sweats when the internet bugs out

… and best of all: no more technology overwhelm.

The best use of money in my professional life, ever!

Supportive, warm, and knowledge packed– so glad I got this certificate program!

 “I stay engaged with your format, and for someone with ADHD who is honestly not that interested in this material but doing it because I know I should, it is HUGE! 

Built with Adult Learning Principles

Applying andragogical techniques to our courses has made them very popular! We know you’re taking this course to improve your teletherapy skills– not just to fill a CE credit requirement (although the CE credit is a nice perk!) 

Unlike the boring courses you watch while cooking dinner (and remember next to nothing from) our courses are crafted using andragogical techniques so that you stay engaged and retain the information so you can use it in your real word practice situations.

As behavioral health professionals, our ethical standards require us to have sufficient knowledge, skills, and understanding of any intervention or tool we employ in our clinical work.  This standard absolutely applies to our use of technology generally, and to telehealth specifically.
One of the best ways to meet these requirements is through a comprehensive training and certification program, like PCT’s Telemental Health Certification.  This equips clinicians to effectively and safely provide clinical services via technology.

The Telemental Health Certificate Program comes bundled with three (3) months of our live support webinars (we call them “Office Hours.”)

Ask any questions you’d like and either discuss it with us live — or watch us answer your questions on the session recording. You can also attend or watch later to see what other people are asking and talking about. It’s a helpful peek into considerations that you haven’t encountered yet!

Want more than 3 months? You’ll have an option to purchase access extensions for as long as you like.

Plus Bonus Relevant Topical Materials:

We have TONS of free useful CE credit hours included!

With each purchase of our Telemental Health Certificate program, we include an additional 8 CE hours of FREE content that complement the work you do in the Telemental Health Certificate Program. 

These courses boost your knowledge on topical subjects that will make your life easier and improve your level of client care. They are not required to receive your certificate. They are add-ons, or bonuses, that we made to help you meet your client’s needs easier and with less frustration. 

Some examples of the BONUS Resources and CE:

Meets NBCC and CA BBS Requirements!

Bonus courses can be used to meet NBCC requirements and CA BBS requirements.

It makes sense that getting training on teletherapy can help you be successful in your work, but it’s hard to explain HOW MUCH of a difference it can make to how you feel — mentally, emotionally, and even physically –when you show up for your clients.

Thanks to Roy and PCT, I’ve been able to quickly and confidently transition my private practice to 100% telemental health during the pandemic almost seamlessly.

What’s the #1 thing colleagues share with us about our courses?


… That they are 110% worth it.

  • Understanding best practice for your specific situation
  • Interactive content is based on adult learning principles and designed to be easily integrated into your real client care situations
  • Feel a massive difference in your attitude and aptitude for practicing telemental health
  • Reducing your anxiety with good humor, commonsense, and easy to understand delivery of information
  • Learn the full spectrum of information you need — so you don’t have to piecemeal trainings (and hope you didn’t miss anything)

I am in the process of hybridizing my practice back to in-person therapy but hope to continue doing as much telehealth as I can. You guys have been a great resource.

Please pass this along to Roy, Liath and the rest of the team how much they’ve helped myself and so, so many of my colleagues here in Arkansas in the past 3 months.

I never even saw a blip or even a tiny dip in my revenue thanks to the available info.

New Paths Counseling

I’m just working my way through your Video Presentation Skills course in preparation for resuming work with my current clients and I just want to say a thousand thank yous for doing this. So so helpful, not to mention entertaining. It’s a really good thing you do, and you do it really well.

Florence Gardner


I also had an opportunity this week to compare your course to one that’s being offered by another company… Your course is a lot easier to learn/understand/apply.

I’m grateful I spent the money and time to complete the [full certificate] course.

Melodie Terman LPC


The money I spent for what you offered was one of the best uses of my money, ever, in my professional life.

I am so happy with what I got from the certificate program, the office hours, etc. etc. I only wish it could go on forever!

I appreciated the humor, the integrity of materials delivery, the ease of application of the material and, most importantly, the deep sense of trust and confidence that developed in me from the process.  I was able to evaluate other things that came my way with ease, and let go of chasing every email from other programs and products that came my way. I realized that my bases were covered to receive an excellent foundation in what I needed and I could relax into my learning and enjoy it.

How does it work?

Step One

Purchase your Certificate Program

Our consultation team is available to help answer any of your questions. 

The coursework is hosted on your personalized dashboard which keeps track of your progress for you and hosts all the information you need for at-a-glance support.


Step Two

Enjoy the Courses and Customizable Forms

Broken into bite-sized chunks, our courses are crafted to help you learn the material and apply it in a real-world way. 

Created by mental health professionals, you’re getting only what you NEED to know delivered according to adult learning andragogical principles so it becomes useful information you can apply and use.


Step Three

Get Clarification and Support

Check with experts on the material, and get guidance on how to grow your telemental health practice.

Our weekly consultation services, called Office Hours, means that you have experts in your corner to help you navigate the information application in your specific contexts.

You get 3 months access included with your certificate program (worth $87) but many of our colleagues choose to invest in it on a month-by-month basis because the information saves them so much time + money.

Example Materials:

Person Centered Tech is extremely proud of the quality of our educational materials. Our primary mission is to promote your learning and independence while also providing the informational and emotional support that you, as our colleagues, need.

This page is here to provide examples of the high standard of quality we employ in our materials.

The first 2 examples are from our core telemental health course, The Telemental Health Certificate Program

The final example is just one of thousands of consultation video clips taken from a session of Office Hours. As a part of the Telemental Health Certificate Program you get three months of access to Office Hours. 

Example 1: Navigating the Telemental Health Certificate Learning Center

This video will take you through the various parts of the Learning Center, where you can access the courses, resources, and track your progress:


Example 2: Video from Practicing via Telemental Health Part III: The Clinician-Client Relationship

All of our course videos use a simple online viewer that works in any browser, and all of the courses in our Certificate Program have transcriptions available:

What Does Office Hours Look Like?


Example 3: Office Hours Question Clip

The central benefit of Person Centered Tech membership is unfettered access to Office Hours. Office Hours sessions are organized into questions, and the recordings are split up into individual question clips for easier access and digestion. The following is one such clip (the question #2 clip, to be precise) from Session 254, our June 18th, 2020 Office Hours session:

Question 2) I am clarifying verbiage. Are Business Gmail and GSuite one and the same? One time, I heard someone say, “if you have the business version of GSuite… ” and then that confused me because I thought GSuite was the business version. If I have GSuite basic ($6) do I have to upgrade again to GSuite Business?

This clip is from Office Hours, which happens live 4 times every month! Three months of Office Hours access (live sessions and searchable library of all previous sessions) are included in the Telemental Health Certificate Program. Office Hours access is also available a la carte, either monthly or annually.

I’ve always wanted to do telemental health counseling versus in-person counseling…the stars are aligned just right and Person Centered Tech gave me the tools to be able to think beyond this current crisis and take this opportunity to turn a bad situation into a future counseling via telemental health.

Melodie Terman LPC


Will this program give me the information I need in MY state?

Can I get my money back?
