Project OPEN will be offering a Peer Employment Specialist training in Portland beginning February 19, 2014. This training is an approved training curriculum in Oregon, as of July 2013. Peers may now be certified to provide employment supports by completing a six day comprehensive training that includes both general peer support and support that is specific to employment.
The training is divided into two segments:
Week One (3 full days): General peer support
Week two (3 full days): Employment
