Certified Peer Support Programs

Rising to Meet the Need for Effective Peer Support Leadership


The Peer Support Leader & Teammate training programs are designed to equip individuals with the tools needed to effectively reach and support first responders with expertise, confidence, and empathy. The Certified Peer Support Leader and Certified Peer Support Teammate programs offer online, on-demand, self-paced training, culminating in a certification exam and requiring continued education. For those new to peer support, the Certified Peer Support Coworker course provides an introductory overview.

Additionally, we offer in-person courses, live webinars, and wellness program development to further support peer support team members. All tracks include specialized training to help students understand the unique needs of public safety professionals.

Developed in collaboration with officers, responders, counselors, and psychologists, the courses blend the latest mental health and leadership approaches with real-world relevance. The curriculum, originally created under Academy Hour by a mental health professional and training specialist experienced with Law Enforcement and First Responders, ensures comprehensive and practical training.
