Good Class. Great knowledge for those who want to help take care of coworkers.

-Lodus J.

Very informative and detailed. The pace was great for an online class; think that granting access to only a portion at a time is good to really make sure that the material is understood. Videos were appropriate and helped to reiterate important subject matter. Definitely worth the money and love the ability to access the training at my convenience. All of my questions were answered so quickly and staff was so professional. Looking forward to having access to additional resources for my department.

-Cheryl L.

I have absolutely flourished with knowledge with this training. I learned things that I can not only apply in my role as a peer support team member, but also as I assist those in crisis in the back of my ambulance. The training gave me an all new perspective on mental health and how to view it and address those in need.

This was a fantastic learning experience, I really felt that it helped me consolidate my training so far in a way that pulled all the pieces together!

-Heather C.

I learned so much from this training! Having worksheets really helped me absorb more information because of my learning style. I learned a lot throughout the course about myself and what I need to help make myself better and then also how to help others.

- Kylie C.

I've spend over a decade as a First Responder without any Peer Support Program and after going through this training, I don't understand why any agency would fail their employees so profoundly by not offering a program like this.

- Tyler W.

This is a great program. I found the information to be relevant and the PDF's and resources spot on.

-Bart W.

Excellent training that addresses all aspects of peer support. The self assessments were an outstanding component.

-George F. 

I've been a sworn LE for 25 years. I've lead our PEER support team for 11 years. I teach departments on how to set up their teams & all the inner workings. This is great training. So many departments think that peer support is about "critical incidents or OIS" . Its SO MUCH MORE! you all totally get it! Thank you!

-Felicia L.

Best training I have received. I will be able to use this training for my lifetime. Thank you Amy Morgan, Academy Hour and the 100 Club of Arizona. You have invested in me so I can now invest back into my Team, Teammates, Peers, Coworkers, Community and my Family. Thank you for all your support!

-Kristina M.

I took my time with this training, included notes, and printed the resource pages. As a new peer support member this course did a great job showing an overview of exactly the things that can be expected and how to professionally and properly handled them. During these situations I will refer back to my training for better knowledge.

-Emily T.

I think this training program is very beneficial for anyone who truly wants to help first responders deal with trauma from their job and other issues that arise outside of their job.

I believe that this was a well constructed and organized training. The course materials were appropriate, as were the periodic quizzes on the materials. The course and the knowledge checks frequently required the course taker to be introspective and therefore cause one to build upon their self-awareness, which is key in being a peer support team member.

I believe that this training is essential in the foundation of building a peer support team.
