Become a CBRT Practitioner

The Training Materials and Trainers

The CBRT course materials are developed and maintained by CBRT HIS Ltd. The CBRT National Trainers and Practitioners are trained, validated and licenced to deliver CBRT by CBRT HIS Ltd and licences are issued on a 3 yearly basis following re-assessment and re-validation by our Internal Quality Assurance staff and processes. CBRT Practitioner training is accredited by the UK CPD Standards Agency.

 CBRT Multi-Choice Assessment (MCQ)

A 40-question MCQ to assess learner knowledge and understanding is to be completed on-line within 5 days of completing the two-day Practitioner course. The pass-mark is 34 out of 40.

Success on the MCQ permits progress to the CBRT Practitioner case studies element. The case studies require the completion of six pieces of written work which will be submitted and assessed by our National Training Managers.

CBRT Case Studies

The case studies are completed as below:

  1.    2 x case studies for two different clients.
  1.    1 x group case study for a group of 3 – 5 clients.

Once these initial case studies are complete, they are to be submitted electronically for assessment and guidance. The Training Managers will then work with you to help you develop your case writing skills and prepare for the review case studies with the same clients.

Your clients will then attend six CBRT scheduled sessions. Following the completion of these sessions you will be required to develop and submit a review case study. These case studies will allow you to reflect upon what you have seen and experienced and reflect upon how you have developed as a Practitioner. These case studies will also reflect upon the experience of your clients, their development and improvement. You will receive guidance and support to assist in the development of these review case studies.

Following the successful completion of the 2 sets of case studies you will receive your CBRT Practitioner certificate electronically in a PDF format and be issues with your CBRT Practitioner licence.

 

CBRT Course Pre-Reading

The pre‐course reading for the CBRT Practitioner Course will only take you around 30 minutes of study prior to the course start date. The pre-reading is designed to encourage course delegates to think about colour, its use and benefits and help to inform discussion throughout the session and increase participation.

To become a CBRT Practitioner, you will need to attend a two day CBRT Practitioner Training Programme and complete a 40 question Assessment Paper and 5 case studies within 12 weeks of attending the training programme.

PLEASE NOTE: CBRT HIS Ltd is striving to become a ‘paper-free’ organisation currently based on easy to use Google forms and Google Docs
throughout the training process. You will therefore require a very basic understanding of how to use a PC, with access to a PC
with an internet connection, to complete the required paperwork before and after the Training Programme.
