Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
There is no time limit for applying for accreditation after you have graduated – you can apply when you are ready without any extension. If you didn’t complete a BABCP Level 2 accredited course, you must be in CBT practice when you apply.
Extensions don’t apply to Provisional Reinstatement. You can apply at any time provided you have previously been provisionally accredited and you have returned or have arranged to return to CBT Practice.
These applications are due 12 months after you were awarded Provisional Accreditation or Reinstatement. You can submit up to four weeks after that date without an extension.
Both applications should show 12 months of supervised practice – these don’t have to be consecutive months if you have had a break in practice.
If there is a delay in you meeting this or other requirements, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension. Please include your membership number, the reason and how much additional time you think you will need. If the reason is a break in practice of more than six weeks, the extension request must be accompanied by a Leave of Absence form and relevant evidence.
If you graduated from a Level 2 course and applied for accreditation before your CBT practice was in place, please request an extension. This should be equal to the amount of time between your Provisional Accreditation date and the start of your CBT clinical work. We don’t need a Leave of Absence form unless there was a subsequent break in practice.
Your Reaccreditation will always be due on the same date every year. If you have Supervisor and/or Trainer Accreditation, they will also be due on the same date which will be the anniversary of your last award.
If you are out of practice for a year or less, you can still sign your Reaccreditation Declaration. If you are out of practice for more than a year, please send us a Leave of Absence form with evidence and your Reaccreditation date will be rolled over to the same date the following year.
If you have been in practice but unable to meet the Reaccreditation requirements, please email email@example.com explaining the details and how soon you would be able to catch up. We will then discuss with you how to proceed.
If either Full application, your Reaccreditation Declaration or any fees are substantially overdue and you haven’t contacted us to discuss the delay, you may lose your accredited status and you will need to apply for Reinstatement. Multiple consecutive applications for Provisional Reinstatement may not be approved.
