You must have successfully completed the state-approved Parent Peer Specialist Training in order to apply to take the Certification Exam. You may apply to take an exam within two year of your training completion date. This is longer acceptable time period for CPPS, because of fewer scheduled exams year to year.
If you have questions about your registration, payment, or exam time slot, email or call Gloria Lane at UW-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education:
UWM-PeerSpecialist@uwm.edu – 414-227-3352
If you require a reasonable accommodation while taking the exam due to a disability, please see our Reasonable Accommodations Request Application (click here).
Reasonable accommodations requests for CPS/CPPS exams must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the exam date.
