Please be advised that MAPCB is no longer accepting the CPRS application marked 2013. Please use the one marked June 2014. The grandfathering period is over and the previous version no longer applies. Also, for anyone considering withdrawing their application because it did not meet grandfathering standards, there is a charge of 50% of the application fee to cover review costs. We advise all who are in that category to continue to complete the application requirements and prepare for the exam. There is a $50 exam fee.
What a relief! CPRS grandfathering ended yesterday. Thank you to all who applied. The Peer Recovery Subcommittee will continue to work on submissions that were emailed, faxed or postmarked by 11:59 pm last night. Our expectation is that approval letters will be out by June 15 and your certificate will be in your hands by July 1. For those who were unable to successfully complete their package by the deadline, please do not be discouraged, but continue to complete your submissions. The Board is ready to support you in your progress. Please contact the Board to discuss your needs. We will help steer you in the right direction.
The CPRS grandfathering process is in its final hours. Items must be postmarked, emailed or faxed (same # as main line) by 11:59 PM May 29, 2014. The Peer Recovery Subcommittee is working tirelessly to meet late demands. Please be patient, but please respond quickly when requested. Also, make sure information in clear and complete. At this point we are waiting for missing evaluations, supervisor sign offs and minor documentation. If you are aware of anything that is missing from your packet, do everything within your power NOW to get it in. This is your credential.
To all peer workers invested in grandfathering to the CPRS, the deadline for all application materials and payment to be in is May 29, 2014. MAPCB has no central office so you must mail everything. We do not accept faxed items as all applications must be original. We also do not accept credit card payment.
If you have started the application but recommendations or transcripts have yet to arrive, please contact the appropriate persons immediately to inform them of the deadline. If you have not sent in documentation or payment, do so now.
The CPRS subcommittee is actively engaged in reviewing applications and answering questions. If you have read the application but are unsure about anything, please contact us by email or by phone. Someone will get back with you as soon as they can.
