Annual Re-accreditation is the process by which IACP members become re-accredited on an annual basis (as opposed to having this done every 5 years).
As and from 1st of January 2016 the IACP accreditation will be processed on an annual basis, arising from a vote of members present at the IACP 2014 AGM.
IACP believe that Annual Re-accreditation is a necessary and positive step in the protection of clients, support of therapists and the development of the profession of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
IACP are committed to making it as easy as possible for members. Dedicated staff members from the Accreditation Department will be on hand to assist members with all queries in relation to Annual Re-Accreditation.
The processing fee for the renewal of IACP accreditation is €20 per year.
The processing fee for the renewal of IACP Supervisor accreditation (including therapeutic accreditation) is €30 per year in total.
NB: There is no increase to your annual charge or processing fees resulting from this change.
As and from 1st of January 2016 the IACP accreditation will be processed on an annual basis.
