eBased Academy Courses

Please be aware that the previous Peer Support Certification classes will be available starting 7/15/22. We have identified areas of improvement with the newer courses, that we believe will make your experience even better than before. While we implement these changes, we still want you to have access to quality Peer Support training.  Certificate of completion for either the old or new 11 ebased peer services courses will be accepted for Peer Supporter Certification.

We apologize for any inconvenience this transition has caused and appreciate your patience as we work to make Peer Support training the best it can be. 

In Ohio, to apply for certification as a Peer Recovery Supporter, or to be eligible to supervise Peer Supporters, you must complete the below 11 eBased Academy courses and save your certificates of completion for each course.
