Peer Support Specialist 101 - Online Course

Course Price: $349 | Nevada Resident Price: $99

 

Peer support is a system of giving and receiving help founded on key principles of respect, shared responsibility and mutual agreement of what is helpful. Individuals who have common life experiences with the people they are serving deliver peer support services. By sharing their experiences, peers bring hope to people in recovery and promote a sense of belonging within the community. The services often provided by peers are multi-faceted and include, but are not limited to: individual advocacy, education, development of natural supports, support of work or other meaningful activity of the individual’s choosing, crisis management support, and specific skills training. This self-paced course is designed to provide a foundation for providing peer support services. This course is 46 CEHs and requires the completion of a workbook which you will receive once you are enrolled. The course consists of eight modules (as outlined below) that meet the educational requirements as required by International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC).
