Peer Support Certification is a confirmation of one’s knowledge, skills, and experience as a peer supporter. Certification verifies one’s alignment with the nationally endorsed Standard of Practice, and is recognized across Canada.  The certification process takes approximately one year to complete and is divided into three stages.

Please note: PSACC does not offer peer support training programs.
