APT Training Course Prices

Prices and pricing policy.

Pricing policy:

APT believes that there are millions of people doing their best to help those who need help, and our aim is to support those people by providing excellent training, and recognition of excellent practice.

The first principle of our pricing policy is dictated by that, in that we strive to keep our prices as low as possible commensurate with delivering excellence. We are aware that there are others who are charging a lot more for delivering a lot less, and we don't want to go along that path.

The second principle is dictated by transparency: nobody ever pays anything other than our published prices so you never have to wonder whether anybody else is paying less than you, they are not. Many of our customers buy substantial numbers of courses, and our prices are geared towards such 'bulk purchases'.

Prices are reviewed at the beginning of each year and any changes in prices take effect on the first day of the following May.

Prices for training courses we bring to you:

3-day courses:  £4,720 plus VAT for a group of up to 15 people.

2-day courses: £3,495 plus VAT for a group of up to 15 people.

1-day course: £1,885 plus VAT for a group of up to 15 people.

Half-day course: £1,345 plus VAT for a group of up to 15 people.

Two half-day courses in one day (on the same day and at the same location): £2,285 plus VAT for groups of up to 15.

Bespoke courses: As above plus a one-off £1,050 per course-day fee.

Extra delegates: £105 plus VAT per person per day.

1-day briefing*: £53 plus VAT / person, no maximum number of delegates (minimum fee of £1,980 plus VAT)

Half-day briefing*: £42 plus VAT per person, no maximum number of delegates (minimum fee of £1,410 plus VAT)

The DBT Masterclass: £6,450 plus VAT for a group of up to 15 people.

MoodMaster Training: £1,000 plus VAT per person for a group minimum six, maximum eight people.

For all the above, you provide a good teaching room and any refreshments (coffee and tea, lunches if you want them) and of course the participants. We do the rest; prices include travel and accommodation for the tutor, course workbooks, registration, certification, APT-Accreditation, and post-course access to APT’s downloadable resources for use with patients where appropriate.

* Briefings and courses differ from one another in that whereas courses are interactive, small-group events with exercises, case presentations and discussions, briefings tend to be more didactic, with the focus on presenting necessary information. Courses normally carry with them APT-accreditation in the subject concerned, briefings normally have certification and registration, but not normally APT-accreditation.

Prices for APT’s Online Live and Exclusive Courses
(Live online courses commissioned by an organisation exclusively for its people).

You can commission most of our courses as online live courses. An online live course typically takes slightly less time than the live course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) and they are live and pleasingly interactive.

An online live course also costs a little less than the live course on which it is based. Whatever size of group (max 40) you only pay for those who complete (minimum 15). 

Prices for the APT’s Online Live and Exclusive Courses:

Workbooks for every delegate are included in these prices. (If you require workbooks being sent to more than one location, there is an extra charge of £9 per extra address.)

To see the Online Live and Exclusive Courses available simply see our courses, nearly all of them are available as online live courses. (The ones that aren’t are the skills based ones and the ones that rely on a lot of live practice.)

Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection.

Online Live and Exclusive Courses from the APT are the only ones that automatically include registration and certification, APT-accreditation and access to any post-course resources.
