FAQs.

What is covered in the web-based online refresher course?

The online refresher is based on the longest current live version of DBT Essentials, so for the syllabus you should refer to that. Obviously there are some adjustments (for example group discussions are easy in a live course, not so easy online; conversely it is easier to show videos online than live) but the syllabus is basically the same. Also the online refresher has an inbuilt exam which, if you are successful in it, upgrades (from Level 1 to Level 2) or renews (Levels 2, 3, and 4) your accreditation.

I have had my DBT training from another provider. Can I attend APT's DBT refresher course and get into the APT accreditation system and resources?

Yes, so long as you can provide us with proof of your comparable training. There is however a charge of £50 to cover administration and the cost of verifying that the training was comparable.

I attended APT training in DBT some years ago – I can't quite remember when but it was more than three years ago. Can I still have an online refresher at the discounted rate?

Yes, it doesn't matter how long ago you attended, you can still undertake the refresher.

The pass mark of 85% seems very high. What happens if I don’t achieve it?

It does seem high, partly because many of the questions are multiple choice, which means you get 25%-30% simply by chance. Even so, 85% is a high mark which you need a good level of competence to achieve. If you don’t achieve it at first you can review the course again and re-take the test, for no extra fee.
