Why an Apprenticeship?

  • A high school or GED level is necessary to provide peer support that is evidence based.
  • Current training opportunities in Florida are disparate due to geography and the lack of consistent training.
  • For peers transitioning off disability, there is added pressure to make the peer specialist career work. The MAP will provide the confidence and assistance needed for these individuals to make a successful transition.
  • There are few opportunities for peer specialists to gain experience working in the field, making it difficult for them to obtain certification as a Recovery Peer Specialist.
  • Working alongside experienced employed peer specialists will provide better preparation for the expectations of their role as a peer specialist, as under preparedness is one of the biggest reports for poor retention in the workforce.
  • Peer Specialists are often hired in isolation and lack guidance and support from other experienced peer specialists.

What Will a MAP Apprentice Receive?

  • Access to a comprehensive catalog of free training through the Magellan Training Academy;
  • One-on-one mentorship and support by an experienced peer specialist;
  • Regular opportunities to connect with and support other MAP apprentices;
  • Career assistance resources;
  • Paid on-the-job experience that can be applied toward the required 500 experience hours for the Recovery Peer Specialist certification.
