We are happy to review the Certificate in peer counselling which is hold at University of British Columbia, starting in fall semester. The UBC Certificate in Peer Counselling is designed to enhance self-awareness, establish meaning connections with others and develop basic counselling knowledge and skills. While completion of the certificate will not lead to specific employment opportunities, the program will benefit individuals and professionals who want to develop practical counselling skills without committing to an advanced degree.
Specific academic credentials are not required but participants should be comfortable reading, writing and communicating in English at a third year university level. An informal interview with the LCC Director or other member of the Peer Certificate Selection Committee will also be required. More information can be found on http://www.lifeandcareer.ubc.ca/peer/
