Dear Academy of Peer Services Learners,

 Core and Elective courses will close on Monday, April 20 at 5:00 pm for scheduled updates. The Academy will reopen, as scheduled, for Term 2 2020 on Monday, April 27. 

 Note: If you are a registered NYS DOCCS user, you will be able to access the Community Corrections courses during our regularly scheduled maintenance period.

 Registered APS users can access a new continuing education (CE) option beginning on 4/20/20. We are currently beta testing and will provide information on registering for this CE opportunity soon.
