APT 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.
Nearly every APT course is APT-Accredited. This means (i) that it contains the right amount of relevant information for its duration, and (ii) the information is presented in an engaging way. 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.
We offer separate accreditation for DBT practitioners.
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 sitting an online refresher. Successful completion of the online refresher, which includes the associated exam, gives you APT’s Level 2 Accreditation.
APT Accreditation, Level 2 means you have undertaken training as in Level 1, and also passed the 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 is as Level 2, with the addition of submitting a project of an acceptable standard. The purpose of the project is to illustrate that you can apply the academic knowledge gained from the course to a clinical situation. Your accreditation currently lasts for 3 years, and is renewable by undertaking the Level 3 refresher component which consists of: the online refresher, the associated exam, and again submitting a project of an acceptable standard.
APT accreditation is specific to the topic in question, so you may acquire 'APT Accreditation, Level 2: Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change' or 'APT Accreditation, Level 2: The RAID® Course'.
Moving From Level 1 to Level 2.
This requires you to pass the web-based exam associated with the course. This is free to people who have attended APT live training and inbuilt into APT online courses. (Note, Level 2 accreditation last for 3 years from the date you completed the relevant APT course, not the exam).

You receive feedback on the case you submit, whether or not it reaches the required standard. Fee: £250 plus VAT per person.
