When it comes to peer specialist training and certification requirements, each state is unique. When beginning the process of learning about peer specialist training, it is very important to first find out if your state has a state certification process and then find out those requirements. There are two good ways to do a preliminary check for your state requirements. Always check with your state office to confirm the information.
