Per DHHS Communication Bulletin #J247, effective July 1, 2017, DHHS has relinquished rights to the NCI training program. Providers currently using NCI are now required to select an alternative curriculum from the list below, or can develop their own curriculum and submit to DMH/DD/SAS for approval. The NCI transition period ends on December 31, 2018, at which time all providers shall have selected and implemented a new curriculum alternative. Providers currently using NCI must notify Sandhills Center of the change to a new curriculum. Once approved by the state, new curriculum information should be sent to Karen Kern, Clinical Monitoring Manager, by fax, 336-389-6539, or email.
