Thank you for considering the NC-H.O.P.E. Peer Support Specialist Certification Training Program. NC-H.O.P.E. is a 40-hour training curriculum approved by the state of North Carolina. Once you complete our training, you will receive a valid certificate showing successful completion of a Division approved 40 hour Peer Support Specialist training which can be used to apply for NCCPSS certification.


  • The program is 5-days a week and runs from 8:30am to 5:30pm. 
  • A short graduation ceremony is held on the final day of training. 
  • To receive an NC-H.O.P.E. certificate of completion, participants must be present and participate on all scheduled training dates. ​
  • Participants who do not complete all 40 hours will not earn the certificate of completion, which is required for Peer Support Specialist Certification by the state.​
  • If you are unable to commit to all of the training hours, please consider a future training date that better meets your schedule. We look forward to having you in NC-H.O.P.E. Training.
