Jesse Kaplan, RCP, CPRSR, CPS

“The Peer Recovery classes that Randy Anderson offers have been instrumental in gaining the needed CEUs towards recertification of my credentials. Besides that, Randy Anderson is a terrific trainer who I am able to learn, glean and grow from by his example. I would highly recommend people to participate in training with Randy for both of those reasons. I approve of Randy Anderson being able to continue to provide these valuable services. Thank you."


Michelle Roy, CPRS

“Without this class I would have had to pay for my CEUs. Trying to figure out which ones would help me gave me anxiety. The CEUs my employer offers are directed at mental health and LADCs. It was also great to talk to other CPRS and see how they handle things in their role. I am super glad I was given the opportunity to take this class. Thanks Randy!”

Emily VanBallegooyen

“As a full-time student with a full-time job, it’s a big stress to stay on top of everything, and CEUs are one of those things. I’m really grateful to Randy at Bold North Recovery for providing relevant, quality trainings for free. Having these trainings relieves the financial burden and allows me to continue to do what I love. I know I benefit from these trainings, and the individuals I serve are direct recipients of those benefits, as well."
