*Class is full* NC Peer Support Specialist 40-hour Training

January 30 @ 8:00 am - February 3 @ 5:00 pm

$30.00

Thank you for your interest. This class is now full. You may submit an application and references to be considered for a future class.

Peer Support Specialists are messengers of hope who are essential in increasing positive outcomes for individuals on their recovery paths. Specialists share their own experiences to help others, and the training offered by Vaya Health meets the guidelines of North Carolina’s Certified Peer Support Specialist Program.

Vaya Health’s trainers have firsthand experience working as Peer Support Specialists, giving them the unique perspective to guide individuals through the course. Activities and discussions provide insight into what it is like to work with peers in recovery. Participants will also learn ways to monitor their own wellness to sustain their recovery and support others on their recovery journeys. The class is interactive, and participants are encouraged to share their perspective throughout the training.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a high demand for our PSS training, and class size is limited by state guidelines. Submitting your application does not guarantee a seat in the next class. If a class is full upon application approval, you will be added to the waiting list and contacted when there is an available seat in an upcoming session. Our training dates and locations are updated quarterly.

Ready to get started? Please submit a complete application packet, which includes the training application and two written references. Instructions for each are printed on the forms linked below. Location details will be shared with individuals who are approved to attend and the $30 registration fee will be collected after acceptance to the course. If you have additional questions, please send email to PSStraining@vayahealth.com. Thank you!
