There are many certifications you could take as a peer. Many times, a peer gets a certificate after undergoing training. These training and certificates vary across states and countries. So in getting a valid certificate, peers must realize which certifications are considered valid in their countries or state before they pay for said training or test.
If you’re in the USA and you’re looking to get peer certified, an excellent place to start will be the NCPS. This is a voluntary examination-based certification that distinguishes qualified peers from unqualified ones. Although the NCPS certificate doesn’t replace the state-issued peer certificate, it serves as an additional guarantee employers or students may consider valuable when hiring the services of a peer. Several states in the USA have individual Peer certification bodies.
Peer Support Canada offers certificates for peer specialists. This certificate comes as a confirmation that its holder has the skills and experience needed in filling the position of a peer. This certificate also verifies one’s alignment with the standard of practice, and it is recognized across Canada. Provinces generally also offer training and certifications, such as OPDI in Ontario.
Positively UK is one certificate you could get in the UK to validate you as a peer specialist. The NCPS also has its reach in this region and offers all the training/ certificates registered under the NCPS.
Around the world, there are several NCPS certificates but to pick the most appropriate for you, you will need to look up your countries or states policies on peers.
