What Clinicians are saying about CPT Training

An excellent workshop that has not only taught me many new skills but has consolidated & strengthened existing skills. The use of the manual (and provision of it!!) was fantastic and followed a clear structure

This training was excellent – not too fast even though there was a lot of content. It is very applicable to implement in my practice and I highly recommend it to other clinicians.

Thank you, best PD I have attended in a very long time. A very good blend of theory and practical skills

2. Completion of CPTweb
3. Participation in a live CPT training (2-3 days) conducted by a treatment developer or an approved CPT Trainer
4. Participation in 20 hours of sanctioned group CPT consultation (with discussion of own clients during the call) OR participation in individual CPT consultation/supervision for a minimum of 12 hours
