Thank you for considering CAPS Academy as your choice for your Peer Support Specialist Certification Training, we are honored to support your learning journey!
Applicants apply to the Academy via online application. Because cohort capacity is limited, admittance is competitive, and applying does not guarantee an interview. Unfortunately due the number of applicants, we will not be able to disclose reasons for admittance not being granted. Once the application period is closed, we begin conducting interviews. Those who have been interviewed will then be notified whether or not they have been admitted. We want each student to have rewarding learning experience and recognize that our format and schedule may not be a good fit for everyone. We encourage applicants to look at all of the approved training vendors that best fits their needs.
Those who identify as a Peer in recovery who are age 18 or older and who have personal lived experience with a mental illness, addiction, justice involvement and/or a close family member with lived experience.
