The Association for Psychological Therapies has been providing quality training in Mental Health and related areas since 1981, and offers the following levels of accreditation for practitioners. This is intended to provide a clear and transparent record of what level of competence you are maintaining and to be of high relevance to employers.
Nearly every APT course is APT-Accredited. This means that:
APT verifies the accreditation by publishing delegates' average ratings of relevance and presentation-quality for all its accredited courses. The accreditation is given weight by over 100,000 professionals having attended APT courses.
The Levels below refer to the accreditation you acquire by attending APT training.
APT Accreditation, Level 1 is the level of accreditation you obtain by attending APT's live training or by studying APT's online training. Your accreditation currently lasts for 3 years, and is renewable by attending a refresher course or sitting an online refresher.
APT Accreditation, Level 2 means you have undertaken training as in Level 1, and also passed the relevant online exam. Your accreditation lasts for 3 years from the date you completed the relevant APT course, and is renewable by sitting an online refresher.
APT Accreditation, Level 3 means that you have Level 2 accreditation and have attended at least 6 days training, some of which may be the relevant Masterclass. Level 3 accreditation lasts for 1 year, and is renewable either by attending a relevant APT Masterclass top-up day, or by submitting evidence of practice and reflections thereon.
APT Accreditation, Level 4 means you have Level 3 accreditation and have attended at least 10 days training, some of which may be the relevant Masterclass, or Masterclass top-up days. Level 4 accreditation lasts for 1 year, and is renewable either by attending a relevant APT Masterclass top-up day, or by submitting evidence of practice and reflections thereon.
APT Accreditation, Level 5 requires you to have Level 4 accreditation and then submit a set project to an acceptable standard. The purpose of the project is to illustrate that you can apply the academic knowledge gained from your training to a clinical situation. Level 5 accreditation is renewable either by attending a relevant APT Masterclass top-up day, or by submitting evidence of practice and reflections thereon.
Note: APT accreditation is specific to the subject in question, so you may acquire 'APT Level 4 Accreditation in Motivational Interviewing', or 'APT Level 3 Accreditation in CBT', etc.
The majority of our mental health training courses are provided this way - we come to you and train a group of up to 15 people for an all-inclusive fee.
The majority of our training is provided 'onsite' but for a few of our courses you can come to us. APT is conveniently located centrally in UK.
Obtain APT-quality input at a time that is convenient to you and minimises the need for 'cover' normally associated with training.
