CPE Training helps peer educators develop leadership skills to be able to successfully create and implement campus programs.  The training covers the role of peer education, how change and high-risk behaviors intersect, listening skills, response and referral skills, how to take action and intervene, recognizing the role of diversity and inclusivity, programming and presentation skills, self-care, and group dynamics. Campuses are relying on their students to be curators of change and support systems for their peers, and the CPE program provides foundational-level skills to allow these students to be successful. Throughout the 12 hour, 8 module course, students will hone their skillsets to be effective peer educators and leaders. 

 

The modules and skillsets that students will develop include:

 

1.      Understanding the Power, Roles, and Characteristics of Quality Peer Educators

2.      Affecting and Understanding “Change Making” as a Peer Educator

3.      Being an Effective Listener as a Peer Educator

4.      A Peer Educator’s Role in Responding to Crisis

5.      Bystander Intervention as a Peer Education Technique

6.      Intrapersonal Applications of Identity as a Peer Educator

7.      Putting the “Educator” in Peer Educator

8.      Group Development and Moving Forward

Students who are certified receive a CPE membership stating that they have indeed been trained in the core skills that will make them a better leader, role model, activist, and team member. After completing the training, students receive a certificate, membership card, and resume attachment by completing the online test. 

This training at Fort Lewis College is brought to you by the Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol & Drug Educators.
