TTS Certification


Announcement: Changes in TTS Certification

After 18 years of providing the UMass TTS Certification there is about to be a big change.  The Association for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD) is establishing a centralized certification process. This new certification will be managed by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals in partnership with ATTUD, the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP), and the National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals (NCCAP). The new process is expected to begin by October 1, 2017 with a grandparenting phase that will be open to participants of CTTTP accredited training programs, including UMass. DETAILS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON.

Meanwhile, if we receive your application for UMass TTS Certification before the details of the new process are announced, we will contact you to discuss your preferred course of action: continuing with the UMass process or deferring until the new process is in place.

Once the new process is implemented no new UMass TTS Certifications will be processed. We are excited about this new process that will bring the profession of Tobacco Treatment Specialist to a new level of recognition.
