The FCB has developed a two-phase certification program, which allows applicants to learn and demonstrate competency while on the job.

The first phase is to earn provisional certification, which requires applicants to meet education, training and testing requirements. A provisional credential is issued for a 12-month period. All CRPS applicants must be employed or volunteering at an eligible site as a condition of provisional certification.

Phase two occurs during the provisional period. Provisionally certified peers must complete all on-the-job supervision and work experience requirements and submit an application for Upgrade to the CRPS credential before the provisional credential expires.

When all requirements are met, the CRPS credential is awarded.
