    Hello…
    I have 3.25 CEU’s for the DLA-20 training and another 11 hrs CEU’s for the NAMI conference in 2018. These hours have no domain specifications. I taught a total of 3 Peer to Peer courses between 2018 & 2019. Do any of those CEU’s go toward ethics?

  2. astalnaker87 says:

    I only need 1.25 hours in mentoring and education to apply for the prss exam. There are NO upcoming trainings. I did recovery coach, ethics, professionalism, spirituality, mental health first aid, the Magellan’s and WRAP. I have my supervision hours and my 500 hours. I am also a registered peer supervisor. What can I do? I have 20 to 30 hours in every domain but mentoring and education and I am stumped. Searched every training. Do I just have to wait another year?

    • MABPCB says:
