Continuing Education Information

The Academy of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery, provider #1975, is approved by the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (PRA) to provide continuing education to Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners (CPRPs) and CPRP candidates.

This activity is approved for a maximum of 10.5 contact hours of continuing education in psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery in the following CPRP Focus Domain(s): I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII.  CPRPs and CPRP candidates should only claim credit commensurate with their participation in the activity.
