  11. Patricia Prather says:

    For re-certification; what is the deadline to have all your paperwork in?

    • MABPCB says:

      In order to allow for review and possibly request additional documentation; it is requested that all re-certification applications be submitted by May 30, 2016, thank you!

  12. imaginistasart says:

    I am taking Intentional Peer Support training in late June-early July and I believe my certification expires on July 1st. Do I have to take the test again?. The training covers all 4 domains requirements.

    • MABPCB says:

      You will not have to conduct the exam. However, your certification will be considered lapsed and there is no grace period. If the re-certification is not completed by the expiration date, you will no longer hold the certification and no further use is permitted until you have re-certified. Also, a $15 per month Reinstatement Fee over and above the re-certification fee of $100 Fee is due if you are late between one day and 12-mos. After 12 mos. no re-certification is possible and applicants would have to reapply, meeting all current requirements and/or possibly conducting the exam.

  14. Hi, I’d like to start training to become a CPRS but I’m a bit confused on how the process works/where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • MABPCB says:

      Melena, I would suggest you review the Certified Peer Recovery Specialist Manual which will provide you with all the information necessary to become a CPRS.

  15. Percy M.Smith, Jr. says:

    God Morning,
    I have been a Recovery Coach since last March and I was wondering!
    Is there a time frame to become a Specialist, from the time you become a Coach?
    And if so, what amount of time do I have to complete the rest of my domains?

    • MABPCB says:

      Greetings Percy, in order to become a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) you must complete all of the necessary training hours in each of the 4 Domains. There is not time limit at this time. However, the organization you are working with may have internal requirements.

  16. allendsweatt says:

    Where and how can one acquire CEU’s to maintain the RPS status?

    • MABPCB says:

      Allen, in the near future MABPCB will be offering some additional course material for RPS. Please continue to visit the CPRS page for additional information.

  17. michele pitts says:

    Please Ed mail me with the next peer recovery specialist

  18. Michele brown says:

    Can you tell me when training’s in the domains will be for CPRS will be.

    • Michele brown says:

      I forgot i am in Baltimore

    • MABPCB says:

      Do you follow our page or have you liked us on Facebook? These are the easiest ways to receive up-to-date messages on upcoming trainings. There is a new post that offers advocacy and recovery/wellness support hours for peers. If in Baltimore, stay in touch with MPAC or Baltimore Recovery Corp, amongst a few good organizations in town that offer periodic trainings.

  19. Jim Freeman says:

    How about some supervisor training on the Eastern Shore in 2015?

  20. Joseph Loyal says:

    when is the next supervisor training ?

  21. Thanks for creating this page. It feels like it will be a great resource! Will you be posting more trainings happening in Maryland related to the PEER Recovery Specialist Certification? How might college credits be applied to the domains for that certification? With the addition of 12 Hours of In-Service training hours being accepted, how do they need to fit with the domains? Thanks for your help!

    • MAPCB says:

      Each domain has its own Job Tasks. The job tasks need to be covered in an in-service training in order for the training to be applicable to the credential. An in-service training that is listed in the group of trainings on an application needs to describe content via syllabus and time on task to receive credit. College credits will be approved only if they follow the same criteria as above. Trainings will be listed if approved.
