OPDI Peer Support Core Essentials™ Program

Last modified by Susan Curry on 2020/03/26 16:58



OPDI Peer Support Core Essentials™ Program involves five full days face-to-face in the classroom with two trainers. There are many individual exercises, group exercises and role plays in class time, and daily written reflections assigned as homework. Prior to classroom training, a required introductory module is delivered via one webinar by OPDI staff. Then, some content from other modules is introduced in subsequent webinars with trainers. Homework (information gathering) is assigned to be brought for use in class. Participants are evaluated by the trainers, and can earn Level 1 or 1R recognition document. Level 1 means the person successfully completed the classroom training. Level 1R means the trainer recommends them to continue on and do an internship in order to earn their Level 2, or “OPDI Certified Peer Supporter”.
