Trainer Reaccreditation

Supervisor Reaccreditation will take place via online declaration in the same way as practitioner reaccreditation once the new system is in place. You will be expected to make the declaration at the same time as your practitioner accreditation.

For further general information about the new reaccreditation process, please follow this link:


Provision of Training

A Minimum 20 hours of CBT Training Practice per year should be delivered.

Training Supervision

Accredited trainers should be receiving appropriate levels of support or supervision for their delivery of training – equivalent to a minimum level of two hours per year, mostly from qualified CBT therapists.

Trainer CPD

Accredited trainers should engage in at least one training-related (but not necessarily CBT specific) CPD activity per year which can count as one of the five practitioner CPD activities referred to above only if it is CBT specific.

Acceptable Training CPD Activities:

There are many activities that could be included as evidence of sustained commitment to development as a CBT Trainer. The activities might not necessarily be specifically related to CBT (as is required for supervisor CBT CPD), but Accreditors would expect you to demonstrate their relevance to CBT Training Practice.

Activities might 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
relevant media involvement.

The hours spent developing CBT Training services or CBT Training programmes may count once only, and first delivery of any ‘Train the Trainer’ programme may count, but subsequent repeated delivery hours may not be counted again.

Providing CBT Training, and undertaking Training Supervision do not count as relevant CPD activity as they are considered as part of your usual job.

If the activity is CBT specific, it may also be used as evidence of your practitioner CPD, but if it is specific to training but not CBT, it should only be shown as trainer CPD.

Logging of Training CPD

It is recommended that you contemporaneously complete Reflective Statements for your CPD. Evidence of engagement will be requested if you are selected for random audit, and submission of Reflective Statements is optional.
