Revised Guidelines for supervisors and revised Guidelines for supervisor training providers commence on 1 August 2018. To find out more and review an advance copy of the new guidelines, read our news item.
Psychologists wanting to become a Board-approved supervisor (BAS) will need to complete Board-approved competency-based supervisor training (full training), consisting of three components:
Psychologists wishing to maintain their BAS status are required to refresh their training every five years by completing at least one Board-approved master class (a one-day workshop).
For more information on these requirements, please review:
The 17 currently approved providers and their contact details are listed in the table below.
Information on the location and scheduling of workshops must be obtained directly from Board-approved supervisor training providers. Many providers list their upcoming workshops on their websites, which can be accessed via the links in the left-hand column.
If a workshop is not scheduled in your area, the Board encourages groups of psychologists, particularly those in regional locations, who are interested in supervisor training to contact training providers directly to organise a workshop in your area.

Applications to become a Board-approved supervisor training provider are conducted periodically through an expression of interest (EOI) process. The frequency of application rounds is dependent upon the need for further supervisor training programs. The Board is planning to conduct another EOI in 2018.
Notice of future EOI opportunities will be communicated on the Board’s website. If you prefer to receive notice via email please send your contact details to email@example.com.
