KSA Pass Verification

When your application for accreditation is fully assessed, we consider both the application and the KSA portfolio. If your application doesn't yet meet our standards, but your portfolio does we issue a KSA Pass Verification certificate, which is valid for any future application for accreditation. When you re-apply for accreditation, you can supply this certificate. You should pay the Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist Accreditation application fee, but will not need to resubmit the KSA portfolio or pay the KSA fee again. 

If your application is withdrawn at triage and not fully assessed (including where a fee has been partially refunded) we will not be able to provide a KSA Pass Verification Certificate.
