Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program

The Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program is being provided by The Duke – UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Program (TTS Program). It is a four-day face-to-face training and combines findings from the most current evidence-based research on pharmacotherapy, population-based issues, practical guidance on running a practice and targeted skills in tobacco dependence counseling. Information is provided in a workbook and through interactive lectures, as well as multiple problem-based learning activities, applied practice problems and practice counseling. A tobacco treatment manual, including an online resource guide solely for TTS participants, is provided during the course and may also be used as a reference guide after the completion of the course.

Participants who complete the four-day training will receive 27.25 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) and will be prepared to sit for the examination for a National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice (NCTTP) offered by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals.

Diverse teams from health care and behavioral health systems are welcomed, as the goal is to increase systems approaches to evidence-based tobacco treatment.

Prerequisites for the training include an associate degree and licensure or certificate in a health care profession (e.g. registered nurse, respiratory therapists) or a bachelor’s degree.

Participants should be tobacco-free for at least six months.



Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapy, public health, social workers, and other mental health professionals across the continuum of care.
