Level 2 Provisional Accreditation

If you are a graduate of a BABCP Level 2 accredited training course, you will have met all of the Minimum Training Standards.  You will become accredited once your Level 2 application has been submitted and successfully processed. 

Please check the list of Level 2 courses to ensure that your course was accredited when you graduated.

All our accredited therapists appear on the CBT Register.


You must :

  • have BABCP membership
  • provide evidence of meeting core profession or KSA requirements
  • have been accountable to a senior member of a mental health profession for a period of 12 months after completion of your core professional training (or for KSA 12 months after all criteria for KSA were met and signed off)
  • have confirmation of the Level 2 course attended and completed
  • if you graduated after 2017, your course will provide us with a list of graduates’ names following External Examination each year – you can apply once we receive this. We will also accept a scan of your Certificate - but this isn’t essential if your name is on the list
  • if you graduated before 2017, please provide a scan of your certificate
  • pay the correct fee.  Details are on our Accreditation Fees page

Timing of your Application

If you don't submit your application or contact us in that time, your Provisional Accreditation may lapse.
