About our Trainings

How much are COCA's DDAP Trainings?

COCA offers DDAP (Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs) trainings at a cost of $20. Fill out registration form and pay directly on COCA’s website.

When and Where are COCA-hosted DDAP Trainings offered?

Trainings are offered regularly throughout the year, both virtually and in person.

Virtual Trainings are on ZOOM.  You will receive an email with the ZOOM link prior to the class.

In-Person Trainings are held at the RISE Center, located at the Big Mill Apartment Building – Ground Floor 702 N. 8th St, Reading, PA.

How do I access my DDAP TMS account and get a certificate of completion?

The portal that DDAP uses is called Training Management System (TMS). To register for a training, it is required to first create an account.

You can register and log-in here: DDAP | Home (pa.gov)

Once in the portal, you can access:

  • Cancellation Notices
  • Online (at your own pace) Courses
  • Required Courses
  • Course Catalogues
  • Certificates of Completion



What is DDAP's Cancellation Policy?

It is the responsibility of the learner to cancel their registrations in TMS. Learners have until 2 hours after the posted class start time to cancel their registration in TMS, however we highly recommend that learners cancel their registrations in TMS as soon as possible and before the course start date to allow others to fill your seat.

To cancel out of a training that you’ve been registered and approved for, login to TMS, and go to My Course Dashboard. Find the training session in the list and select the Start Cancellation button to complete the steps needed to cancel. You will receive a confirmation of your cancellation via email.

If for some reason you are unable to cancel your registration timely in TMS, you must email both DDAP and the host/primary contact before the cut-off time to avoid a no-show penalty.


What happens if I miss a training without cancelling?

If a training is missed without canceling, a $50 no show penalty will be assigned, and you will be unable to register for additional classes until the fee is paid.

Any registrations you had prior to receiving the no show fee will NOT be cancelled. For example, John Doe signs up to take two trainings, one on a Monday and another on Friday, John misses Monday’s training and receives a no-show fee notification. If John also misses Friday’s class without first cancelling his registration, he will be assigned a second no show fee.
