Peak Level 1 Certification

PEAK curriculum enables individuals to gain skills without teaching because of the way in which the teaching is mixed and combined, enabling learners to start using their own taught skills and strategies in order to learn new skills.


PEAK stands for Promoting the Emergence of Advanced Knowledge. PEAK works in teaching skills by combining them so that learners do not focus on certain skills in isolation. Instead of focusing on teaching within a certain area intensively, PEAK mixes different developmental areas enabling learners to gain new skills with more flexibility and then correlate these skills more easily.
