BABCP Accreditation

Reaccreditation News

25 July 2018

The new annual system of Reaccreditation was launched at the beginning of July. All fully accredited members now reaccredit every year.

Members due to reaccredit will be invited to do so by email a few weeks before their due date, which will be the anniversary of their last accreditation or reaccreditation, even if that was less than five years ago. EG a member who gained full accreditation 1/2/16 will reaccredit within the new system on 1/2/19 and every year after that on the same date. For full details, please follow this link: Reaccreditation

Certificates are no longer issued at reaccreditation, so whether you have recently reaccredited or whether you have stayed accredited whilst waiting for the process to launch, your ongoing accreditation status can be verified on the CBT Register UK.


BABCP offers accreditation for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists, Supervisors and Trainers. BABCP also accredits CBT training courses at two levels.

Before applying for accreditation you must first be a fully paid up BABCP member. To join visit:
