During fall 2019, the Competence center for lived experience and service development (KBT) got accredited vocational school education. The school is accredited by NOKUT (the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education). The education gives a certificate with 60 ECTS credits. Students who complete the courses will therefore get merit and admission into higher education.
First study program – education for Peer Supporters
The KBT vocational school study program for peer supporters in the field of mental health and addiction problems, is an education program that provides both theoretical and practical competence based on the use of personal experience in helping and empowering others.
In 2020 we welcomed our first students. Despite the situation with covid-19, we look back at the first year as successful. The study program is mainly web-based, and we have students from all over Norway.
