Wisconsin Peer Specialist

Certification Exam

Study Guide

In the Spring of 2011 the Wisconsin Association of Peer Specialists was given the esteem honor by the state to develop a comprehensive Certification Study Guide, to enhance the opportunity for more trained Peer Specialists to attain a passing grade of 85% on the state Certification exam.  Prior to the development a study guide, only 49% of people taking the exam attained a passing grade.  With the development a study guide, that percentage has grown to over 90% of those taking the test attaining a passing grade.  The rewrite for the Association study guide was done by Certified Peer Specialists who are working as Peer Specialists in a variety of venues.

Those  who have previously taken the test have found a study guide to be of great assistance to them.  Those who have commented and shared their opinions on both guides have indicated that this comprehensive study guide surpasses the quality of the original study guide released in 2010 and recently revived. 

The comprehensive study guide formatted by the Association is provided as a free service of the Association to all those taking the state certification exam.  Study well and we hope to have you join us in the profession.
 
The Association Comprehensive WI CPS Study Guide is updated as we receive changes from the Wisconsin Peer Specialist Program Coordinator or the Peer Specialist Committee of the WI Recovery Implementation Task Force.
