The Ambulatory Care sub-sector focuses on providing care to patients who do not require a hospital stay, and includes services provided in clinics and physicians' offices. We currently offer the following training program(s) for jobs in this sub-sector:
Certified Recovery Peer Advocate
The Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) training program is delivered in partnership with Queensborough Community College and prepares participants to become CRPAs. CRPAs have personal experience with substance abuse issues, and draw from that experience to support people in recovery. During this part-time, two-month program, participants will be prepared to pass the CRPA certification exam and learn skills for the job. After completing the program, graduates will interview for full-time opportunities with employers hiring for this new position. CRPAs make approximately $17/hour.
