Becoming CAMS CERTIFIED

The only authorized source for adherent training in the CAMS Framework®

CAMS CERTIFIED is the second designation released by CAMS-care for clinicians willing to treat suicidal patients using CAMS. CAMS CERTIFIED is focused on demonstrating your knowledge and adherence to the CAMS Framework.

Every training element you complete to become CAMS TRAINED will count towards your future designation of CAMS CERTIFIED.

The first step to become CAMS CERTIFIED is to have a set of completed and de-identified Suicide Status Forms reviewed by a CAMS Consultant. This review process involves you submitting the SSFs to andrew@cams-care.com. The CAMS Consultant will review your SSFs and set up a 30-minute call with you to provide feedback on your use of the CAMS Framework. SSF Review: $300.

You will be asked to re-certify every 5 years by having another set of SSFs reviewed.

The second step is to take, and pass, the Book CEs for Managing Suicidal Risk, 2nd Edition, a Collaborative Approach. Book CEs – 6 hours: $49.

Each year there will be some element of CAMS training you will be asked to complete to stay current with developments and the research base for CAMS.

BENEFITS OF BEING CAMS CERTIFIED

  • You can use your CAMS CERTIFIED status to have your clinic designated as a CAMS Approved Clinic
  • You can provide consulting to other CAMS trained clinicians in your organization although we still encourage arranging Consultation Calls with CAMS Authorized Trainers from time to time
  • You can host book clubs and meetings to discuss the CAMS Framework internally
  • Treating suicidal clients is stressful. A CAMS team supervised by CAMS Certified Clinicians builds confidence and competence when working with people with serious thoughts of suicide
