Peer C.O.R.E.+

for completing the CEU requirements for CPRS certification after having completed CCAR Recovery Coach Academy

We've tried to make this a bit easier and more efficient for peers. Many peers will remember the days of tracking hours and CEUs using paper, pen, and pencil. There's no reason to do that with our C.O.R.E.+ course that offers all the CEUs you need to advance in your CPRS certification. This is a hybrid, asynchronous course.
