The Online Therapy Institute’s Certified Cyber Therapist course is restricted to experienced and qualified mental health practitioners with proper training and experience such as, but not limited to counselors, psychologists or psychotherapists.
Generally this requires an advanced degree and the ability to practice independently in your state or country. As example, in the United States an applicant must either be licensed by a state board as an LMFT, LCSW, LPC, LMHC or Licensed Psychologist or be working toward licensure. Exceptions include school and career counselors who hold a graduate degree and work in a school or college setting. Other exceptions may be considered.
In the United Kingdom, proof of an advanced level post-graduate qualification in mental health (UK Diploma, Master’s Degree, Doctorate). Counselling students and those with non-post graduate qualifications are also sometimes accepted in special circumstances.
Applicants from other countries must hold equivalent qualifications.
You will be required to fill out a pre-qualification form and this will remain as part of your student record.
Once qualified, the applicant will be registered to the CCT course.
In the UK this course is 80-hours fulfilling requirements for BACP and ACTO. A CPD certificate is awarded when your credential is granted.
In the US this course is 60-hours and considered professional development. A clock-hour certificate is awarded when your credential is granted.
Applicants from other countries will be assessed as to the 80 or 60 hour qualification.
The primary difference between the 60 and 80 hour course is that registrants from the UK and Europe must complete GDPR training.
