Ethics Trainings

Family Peer Support Specialists:

Please note that FPSS do not need those additional 6 hours of ethics for their initial certification.

 

Peer Support Specialists:

Peer Support Specialists DO need 6 additional hours of ethics in order to get certified.  These extra ethics hours do NOT need to be peer specific, so any type of ethics (except prevention ethics) works.

 

Peer Support Specialists & Family Peer Support Specialists:

For RECERTIFICATION, ethics hours are required for both credentials.  FPSS and PSS are also welcome to obtain the ethics hours through online/distance learning or through Iowa Board of Certification.

 

The $15.00 CEU Processing fee is NOT required for a new certification – it’s only due on recertifications when the applicant is submitting a training that was either not approved by us (approved trainings can be found on our website under the “Education” tab) or were online trainings.

 

 

The ethics trainings listed below are offered by online companies.  There are fees required to complete the trainings. These trainings may be submitted to the Iowa Board of Certification as Distance Learning and may require the IBC $15 processing fee (recertification only). The courses listed below meet the continuing education requirements for Peer and Family Peer Support Specialists. Visit the Iowa Board of Certification website for information on CEUs.
