The APT Diploma for Working with Substance Misuse.

The APT Diploma for Working with Substance Misuse provides 120 hours of focused training and is APT-accredited. We bring the training to your own organization, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.

Executive Summary:

The APT Diploma for Working with Substance Misuse provides 120 hours of training in 8 modules over 12 months. We bring all the modules to you for a fixed fee, to ensure you get a supportive group addressing the same material.

The diploma comprises 20 days of training covering the modules below.

After every module students are expected to sit an exam. To be awarded the diploma, students must attend at least 7 of the live taught modules, pass at least 7 of the exams.

To obtain a distinction, students must submit and pass a written case study (3,000 - 4,000 words) describing the work based application of the approach they have studied.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Diploma in Working with Psychosis, and receive a certificate to this effect and 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 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Booking this training is easy.

Online Live and Exclusive course (for teams and organisations):

Online Live Courses typically take slightly less time than the face-to-face course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they are live and pleasingly interactive. Click here to view prices.

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. And as a manager, you have ‘guaranteed completion’: you only pay for delegates who successfully complete (minimum 15).

Option 3: '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 (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
