    I took the I-FPRS Training Course and did not receive a Certificate and I am also not listed on the Roster showing certified as one. I have also asked for a copy of my CPRS Renewed Cert. Will someone please help me. I have asked many people withing the MABPCB and still no assistance.

  2. Can you clarify on the Ethics requirement for re-certification? Is it 6 credits in ethics or does it need to be a specific ethics class? Will you be offering more ethics trainings for re-certification? Thanks.

    • MABPCB says:

      For Re-Certification, a CPRS must participate in an Ethical Responsibility class providing ethical CEU’s ONLY. The class must be at least 6 credit hours.

  3. Donna Bruce says:

    To the entire Board of Maryland Addiction & Behavioral-Health, Thanks for paving the way for careers that we all can use our lived experiences to help others and make make impact in their lives!!Thanks again and its an honor to be in service and apart of a massive movement that is changing lives!!!

  4. I have almost 60 hours of total Relias Trainings of different variety. How do I find out which courses will count towards my hours, as well as which domain the course falls under? I see Relias is approved but I am unable to find out what is approved and what they can be used for.

    • MABPCB says:

      The online training through Relias are good for re-certification, because they do not identify domains. Peers are only eligible to submit 2.5 hours of online training for re-certification and 5 hours for initial certification.

  5. Andrea Landry-brown says:

    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?

  6. astalnaker87 says:

    Can you do any online training’s when getting your certification?

  7. Hi, I am looking to find out when there are CPRS/CCAR trainings. I really want to go to ones about ethics and spirituality. My name is Rebecca/Cali. Please email me to let me know when trainings will be happening. I am currently in a volunteer position facilitating an art wellness group. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

  8. I need to know how to document my in-service hours that I would like to count towards my 46 Training hours. I can I can have up to 12 and i really only need 1.75 to be able to turn in my application. We just aren’t sure how to document that in the application as it has no instructions.
    Thank you!

  9. namastephie 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:

      Peer are able to have their agency provide inservice hours for up to 12 CEU’s. You can have your supervisor conduct an in-service for the 1.25 hours in Mentoring/Education. Please refer to the CPRS application manual for more details.
