Become MAP certified

Direct care staff, including licensed nurses working in positions that do not require a nursing license, must be Certified in MAP in order to administer medications in DMH, DCF, or DDS community programs.

MAP certification training

MAP DPH Regulations are intended to address the medication administration needs of stable individuals who are living in Department of Mental Health, Department of Children and Families, and adult Department of Developmental Services licensed, funded, or operated community residences. Typically, staff receive trainings provided by a Service Provider who supports one of these applicable community residences.

However, if you are not employed by one of these Service Providers and you would like to take the training from an independent MAP Trainer.  A list of independent MAP Trainers can be found on the D&S Diversified Technologies website.

MAP certification testing

MAP DPH Regulations are intended to address the medication administration needs of stable individuals who are living in Department of Mental Health, Department of Children and Families, and adult Department of Developmental Services licensed, funded, or operated community residences. MAP Certification Testing information can be found on the D&S Diversified Technologies website.
