Supervisor training

Board-approved supervisor training

Psychologists wanting to become a Board-approved supervisor need to complete Board-approved competency-based supervisor training (full training), consisting of three components that need to be completed in sequence:

  • Part 1 – Knowledge assessment. This part requires at least seven hours of self-directed preparatory work relating to knowledge of best-practice supervision and knowledge of relevant Board codes, guidelines and policies. Completion of this part requires passing an online assessment.
  • Part 2 – Skills training workshop. This two-day workshop focuses on integrating knowledge and practical skills. It requires direct/live training to develop practical supervision skills that are relevant to all supervisee training pathways and to reflective supervision practice.
  • Part 3 – Competency-based assessment and evaluation. This part requires you to submit an electronic recording of a supervision session and a written reflection of the session. The training provider will systematically assess your demonstration of supervisor competencies and provide a pass or fail grade and feedback.

Psychologists wishing to maintain their supervisor approval are required to refresh their training every five years by completing at least one Board-approved master class. A master class is a competency-based training workshop requiring at least six hours of direct/live training.

Psychologists who have had a break from supervision or from practice more generally, or feel they need to refresh their knowledge and skills across the supervisor competencies, are encouraged to complete full training (at least Part 2) instead of a master class.

For more information on these requirements, please review:
