Executive Summary:

The APT Diploma in Psychological Therapies provides 90 hours (or more) 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 comprizes at least 15 days of training made up by attending your chosen courses from the list below (e.g. five 3-day courses). If you are part of a team then your team/organization chooses the courses and you then all attend the same ones:

Key:
*  Course also available for individuals and whole teams to attend 'online anytime'.
^  Course also available for individuals to attend 'online live'.

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.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

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 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Option 4: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organization, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organization the tutor-component of the fee each time you run it or your chosen modules (50% of the 'Online Live and Exclusive' fee, regardless of whether the course is held face-to-face or online).
