(Updated October 15, 2019)

To fill out Certification forms, login and select Certification under the Downloads tab.

During The One-Year Training Program

  1. Complete the pre-training survey.
  2. Participate in all scheduled launch or preparation/readiness activities, including orientation videos and assigned readings.
  3. Participate in all scheduled training days (Basic Training and Advanced Training).
  4. Participate in 9 or 75% of scheduled clinical consultation calls.
  5. Submit audio files for 2 cases during consultation to obtain initial clinical and implementation feedback. Both submitted audio files will be rated for model fidelity by your trainer. Should you move forward with clinician certification, any that pass fidelity requirements will be used for the certification audio review requirement, below.
  6. Complete the post-training survey.
  7. Contact your trainer to verify completion of all training requirements.

After The One-Year Training Period is Complete

  1. Complete the clinician certification application.
  2. Pay the application fee online or by mail.
  3. Once the fee is received, a link to the AF-CBT Knowledge Questionnaire will be provided. Achieve a score of at least 80% on the AF-CBT Knowledge Questionnaire to pass. For those who score less than 80%, a second chance option will be provided.
  4. Submit a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 audio files of recorded treatment sessions for fidelity review. To count toward this requirement, an audio file must achieve >80% fidelity. A fee of $100 for fidelity review must be paid before a file can be submitted or reviewed.
  • For complete instructions on how to submit your audio files, click here.
  • After a file is submitted and reviewed, your trainer will send a confirmation e-mail with the score your file received. If at least 2 of your submitted files pass 80% fidelity, you will be able to continue the certification process. Each audio file submitted during the consultation period is also reviewed for fidelity for no additional cost. Further submitted audio will be reviewed for a fee of $100 per audio file. If you have submitted 4 files and fewer than 2 of your submitted files pass 80% fidelity, you will not be able to continue the certification process.
  • For more information about our audio submission system, please click here.
  1. Complete 2 AF-CBT cases and submit case completion checklist forms, submitting them by e-mail or fax to the trainer:
  • A completed case is one which includes content from all 3 phases and the content of each topic that was implemented was fully covered.
  • For each case, complete an AF-CBT Case Completion Checklist that includes the sections and tasks administered for each topic. For topics/content not completed, note the reason for non-completion. Raters will consider these reasons in determining whether a case will be considered complete.
  • Each case must include at least 1 outcome standardized measure at intake and discharge.
  • A supervisor familiar with the case must sign the case completion checklist to vouch for its completion.

 

A certification document (good for 5 years) is provided upon meeting all of these requirements.
