To become a certified Recovery Support Peer Specialist (RSPS) in the State of Texas, you must meet the minimum education, age and residency requirements, verify your education and training and complete a background check to qualify for the Initial 6- month RSPS Certification. This certification is good for 6-months until the field experience and supervision hours are completed.
The Full RSPS Certification requires completion of 250 hours of work/field experience (volunteer or paid) with supervision by a Peer Support Supervisor. The certification is valid for two years.
There is a fee for both certificates and for the background check.
