Trainer Accreditation and Reaccreditation CPD

Trainer Accreditation - you must provide evidence of at least one training related CPD activity per year for the two years prior to application. 

Trainer Reaccreditation - you must continue to do at least one piece of training CPD per year. 

The activities don’t have to be CBT specific, but if they are, one per year can be included within the five practitioner CPD activities for Reaccreditation.

Reflective Statements are required for each of activity at Supervisor Accreditation and if selected for Random Accreditation Audit. It is best to complete them shortly after completing the activity.

Training CPD Activities

There are many activities you can do as evidence of a commitment to development as a CBT Trainer. They don't have to be related to CBT, but we  expect you to demonstrate their relevance to your CBT Training Practice. Activities can include - 

  • attendance at workshops or courses relating to Training Practice and skills
  • attendance at conferences and seminars relating to Training Practice, for example learning to use presentation skills, presentation aids such as PowerPoint or interactive whiteboards
  • involvement in relevant research
  • relevant publications by you
  • reading relevant books and journals etc.
  • involvement with Training SIGs [PE - what Training SIG?]
  • relevant media involvement
  • hours spent developing CBT Training services or CBT Training programmes count once only
  • delivery of any ‘Train the Trainer’ programme counts only once

Providing CBT Training and having training supervision don't count as relevant CPD activity.
