Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
We welcome people from many backgrounds and different experiences to apply for BABCP Accreditation.
To apply, you must meet our criteria for CBT training and also have a BABCP-recognised professional background in mental health or related areas. This means having a Core Profession or equivalent that we recognise.
If you don’t have a Core Profession, you must complete a portfolio of evidence to show that you have equivalent training and experience in these fields. This is known as the Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSA) route.
Every KSA and Core Professional applicant must also apply for Practitioner Accreditation to become accredited as a CBT practitioner.
A KSA portfolio has a number of criteria which demonstrate training and experience in a mental health or related background. These criteria must all be met by every applicant.
