Provisional Accreditation as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the BABCP means that the Entry Criteria and
Minimum Training Standards
for Accreditation have been achieved.
Full Accreditation is dependent on submission, 12 months after the date of
Provisional Accreditation, of an application for Full Accreditation
The overall process of Accreditation is not complete until Full Accreditation
has been granted. If an application for Full Accreditation is not received, or
granted, then the practitioner's status of Provisional Accreditation will
lapse, and the individual will have removed themselves from the CBT Register UK.
Please note, if you have completed a BABCP Level 2 Accredited CBT training course, you will need to use the Level 2 Provisional Application form.
Please use the Correct Form
The Provisional Guidelines were updated on 15/11/17. Please ensure that you have printed off and are consulting these Guidelines.
Provisional Accreditation Timeframes
Accreditation is up to an 18 week process. Please contact the office only if you have not heard about your application after that amount of time. We are not able to expedite applications.
Timeframes for Problem Resolution
Provisional Accreditation applications are assessed by two separate accreditors.
If issues are raised by either of the two accreditors during the process and are not resolved within a six- week timeframe, the association will recommend the applicant withdraw their application.
The advice would then be to reapply for practitioner accreditation at a time when the issue/s raised have been addressed.
If applicants do not wish to withdraw as recommended, they may appeal, initially to the Senior Accreditation Liaison Officer, and then to the Practitioner Accreditation Committee.
The six-week time frame would commence from the date when/if the accreditor stops the process, in order to request further information.
