Peer Recovery Support Specialist Supervisor Certificate Preparation New

If you are supervising Peer Recovery Support Specialists in clinical and non-clinical settings, you will learn how to use the 20 core competencies of peer supervision to provide guidance for peer workers and promote competent and ethical delivery of peer recovery support services. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the recovery oriented philosophy and what the peer role entails; develop knowledge and job skills related to peer services and understand how to assist peers in developing these skills; exercise a strength-based person-centered approach and coach peer staff to develop self-awareness; and learn how to advocate for and promote peer services. This training is being offered through Foundation for Recovery, one of two approved training institutions, and is the first step in obtaining a PRSS-Supervisor Certification through the Nevada Certification Board.

Prerequisite: Students must have a high school diploma, GED or HSE.

For peers, the requirement includes maintaining a PRSS state certification for a minimum of two years.
