How does this work? How do I complete the training and get a waiver?
Physicians: To complete the Buprenorphine Training Activity, you must take all 10 modules on this site, including a pre/post-test and pre/post survey. After you complete all 10 modules and request credit (You can claim up to 9 credit hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit (TM) after you complete the activity), you will be eligible to apply for your waiver by filling out the online Buprenorphine Waiver Notification form on SAMHSA's website.
NP/PAs: To complete the required 24 hour Buprenorphine Training Activity, you must take all 10 modules on this site (Buppractice.com - Part 1), 5 modules on SBIRTTraining.com (Part 2a), and 10 modules on OpioidRisk.com (Part 2b) and you must complete a pre/post-test and pre/post survey for each site. The links to the training activities on these two other websites should be reached by clicking on connecting buttons at the bottom the NP/PA activity page on this website, Buppractice.com. After completing all three parts and requesting continuing education on Part 1 (8 hours) and Part 2b (16 hours total from SBIRT and OpioidRisk), you can submit the online Buprenorphine Waiver Notification online form on SAMHSA's website. You will also need to electronically send a copy of your training certificates with your waiver application via email to email@example.com OR via fax to 301-576-5237.
