Continuing Education for
Certified Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialists

Are you a Certified Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialist?

Let WISE help you obtain your Continuing Education hours!

Cal Voices is a CalMHSA approved Continuing Education training provider for the Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialist Certification in California (Provider Identification Number: #XXXXXXXX).

In order to maintain the Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialist Training, a Certified Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialist (CMPSS) must complete twenty (20) hours of continuing education during each renewal period (every two years). This includes six (6) hours of law and ethics training. To satisfy the renewal requirements, training courses must be non-repetitive (i.e., the same CE course cannot be claimed more than one time during each certification period, even if the course was taken annually). 

Learn more about the continuing education requirements for CMPSS here.
