The Certified Peer Specialist training introduces learners to the principles of recovery and peer support as the catalyst for transforming individuals’ lives. Informed by SAMHSA’s Peer Support Core Competencies, learners will develop the foundational skills necessary to help peers thoroughly explore their challenges, and to support the skill-building and decision-making necessary for self-determined recovery.

The training covers recovery values and theoretical principles as well as practical skills for service delivery. Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP Seminar 1) is included, as well as introductions to trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, professional ethics and boundaries, documentation and mandated reporting. This 75-hour course is conducted through both live and self-paced sessions and involves active participation with course facilitators as well as other members of the learning community. This course is designed to prepare learners for qualifying exams and other elements necessary to successfully obtain the CPS certification as outlined by state regulatory entities.
