Accessible Training and Certification as a Value

We strive to center principles of inclusivity and accessibility in our Certified Peer Specialist and Certified Parent Peer Specialist trainings and exams. People with disabilities sometimes require reasonable accommodations in order to engage effectively in the CPS/CPPS training and examination process.

If you are in need of reasonable accommodations that would you help navigate certification with a disability, please see the application form below.

Each request will be reviewed on an individual basis, also factoring in programmatic limitations, health and safety considerations, and so on.
