How to Choose a CBT Training Course

Before training in CBT

Prior mental health training and experience are needed to get onto many CBT courses, and for accreditation. The section on Core Professions is the best place to start finding out about this. 

Considerations when choosing a course

BABCP Level 2 accredited courses will allow you to meet all the requirements for accreditation - you won't need to work through the points below as they satisfy all of our criteria.

BABCP Level 1 accredited courses - meet our accreditation criteria in the sections below marked with *an asterisk. However there will be other requirements they don't meet. They have achieved Level 1 accreditation because they meet our standards in training quality.  

Other courses - sometimes cost, location or other commitments may mean that it is more practical for you to complete a non-accredited course. It may still be possible to become accredited if you take one of these - the points below should help you choose. 

Its important to contact the Directors of any courses you are considering and ask for their curriculum details.
