CPS Continuing Education
The Via Hope Peer Specialist Certification is valid for a period of twenty-four months from the date the certification is issued. During that period the Peer Specialist must acquire a minimum of twenty Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to maintain his or her certification. Each CEU is equivalent to one hour of contact time in an approved training event. These approved events may be conferences, classroom style training or other in-person related events.
If you are interested in attending qualifying events, review the list of current pre-approved trainings. If you have attended an event or training not on that list and would like to request credit for it, please complete the CEU approval request form.
For more general information on CEUs, please refer to the CPS Policy and Procedure manual.
