The APT Diploma in Psychological Therapies provides 90 hours of focused training and is from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited training for professionals working in mental health and related areas in the UK and Ireland.
It is the only Psychological Therapies Diploma that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online.
The APT Diploma in Psychological Therapies provides 90 hours of training, leading to Level 4 APT accreditation. Attend the diploma as an individual or we can bring the training to you for a fixed fee, to ensure you get a supportive group addressing the same material.
The diploma comprises 15 days of training made up by attending/choosing five of the seven courses below:
To be awarded the diploma, students must also complete an online exam (in their own time) after each course.
If you have already attended one or more of these courses in the last 2 years, then you have an exemption for that subject(s), you don't need to attend the same course again. If you have already attended the equivalent of one or more of these courses from another training-provider in the last 2 years, then again you have an exemption for that subject(s), although you do need to submit evidence of the training and pay a reading fee for APT assessing it.
Please note that the diploma should be completed in not more than 2 years from the date you undertake the first course.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining The APT Diploma in Psychological Therapies, and receive a certificate to this effect and Level 4 accreditation which gains you access to the resources associated with the course.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation to use the resources lasts for 3 years and is renewable by attending a Masterclass top-up day or submitting evidence of continued practice, and your reflections on that practice (to the required level).
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 125,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
