APS Survey on Training:

Please take a few moments to help us identify training programs for peer support specialists.  The survey should only take approximately 10 minutes to complete. This survey was developed to identify in-person and virtual study groups offered to learners working on Academy of Peer Services (APS) coursework. The purpose of gathering this information is to help people access learning communities to successfully complete APS course work and post-tests required for New York Peer Support Specialist Certification. Thank you for your valuable contribution to this effort!


We wish you a productive term, stay safe and visit us often!

The APS Team
