Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
If you are retiring, you can apply for Extended Practitioner (EP) Accreditation. This will allow you to stay on the CBT Register if needed to provide supervision or training in any setting.
It will apply for a period of two years from your last day of clinical practice, after which you will be asked to lapse your accreditation. If you initially took a leave of absence and then apply for EP Accreditation, the latter will be backdated to the last day of your clinical practice.
Not completely sure about retirement?
Your CBT clinical practice should have permanently and completely ceased to apply for EP. If you are not sure if your retirement is permanent, please apply for a Leave of Absence instead.
Alternatively, you only need to have two client contacts a week to be considered in practice for accreditation purposes, so you may want to consider maintaining a small practice in order to stay accredited.
Please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Extended Practitioner Accreditation”.
Your email should include the date when you ceased clinical CBT practice and information on the supervision and/or training you expect to be providing.
