Also known as Peer Employment Training (or PET), RI Consulting’s Peer Specialist Training is state-certified by the state of Arizona. Peer Support Specialists are trained primarily at RI International headquarters: 2701 N. 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85006.
For Phoenix AZ registration, the first step is to attend a PET/CPSS orientation.
Orientations are held at RI International headquarters in Phoenix (2701 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85006). At orientation, interested individuals will receive information on how to apply, funding resources in the community, and more. Please check our Calendar for upcoming orientation dates.
At orientation, interested individuals will receive application materials, funding/scholarship information, and training specifics on each of the upcoming PET/CPS classes.
- Classes are generally 2 weeks/10 days, although occasionally we facilitate 2 1/2 week classes.
- Classes usually run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. We request students clear their calendars to be with us for 10 consecutive days.
