Good afternoon, PSCFL Members!
I hope this training announcement finds you all well. We are excited to share with you a Helping Others Heal: Peer Specialist Training opportunity in Tallahassee coming in March 2018. See training details and a link to apply below!
This is a 40-hour training that will solely fulfill the training requirements to apply for certification as a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist through the Florida Certification Board. There will be no cost for this training; any travel or lodging expenses will be the responsibility of the training participant.
Applicants must attest to the type of lived experience that makes them eligible to serve as a peer to others. If your application is accepted, there may be a brief phone interview with one of the trainers. Applications must be complete and submitted before 11:59 pm on February 16th, 2018
A Peer Specialist Course Self-Assessment is a part of the application and will assist you in preparing for participation in the training.
Please review the Florida Certification Board’s approved documents before applying to familiarize yourself with the requirements and guidelines for certification as a CRPS: http://flcertificationboard.org/certifications/certified-recovery-peer-specialist-adult-family-or-veteran/.
