When does the Knowledge Assessment need to be completed?

It is a STAP requirement that the knowledge assessment be complete within 6 months of first registering for the program. It is a Board requirement that the knowledge assessment is completed before the Workshop, as such STAP asks you to kindly complete this 2 weeks prior to the Workshop.

Do I have to be a Psychologist to complete the training?

No, the training can be done by anyone who thinks it will benefit them in their work. Social
workers and counsellors also often do the training as well as psychologists.

Can my employer or a third party payee pay for my training?

Yes. Your employer can pay for the training. We would invoice them for the training first and
once paid we would then send you a confirmation email with details on how to access the
training online.

How do I qualify to become a board-approved supervisor?

To become a Board-approved supervisor you must have: held general registration as a psychologist for at least three years, and. successfully completed full training with a Board-approved provider. Once the training is completed and you have received your certificate of completion from STAP you then need to contact AHPRA and register through them to officially become a registered supervisor.

How long do I have to complete the whole training package?

12 months from the date of payment.

How long does each component of the training take?

Component 1 the online Knowledge Assessment will take approximately between 10-15 hours and must be completed within 6 month of first registering for the training program. Component 2 the two day workshop takes two full days ( starting 9am – 5pm ).Component 3 the video evaluation needs to be approximately 50 minutes long.

When do I need to complete my video evaluation?

Although you have 12 months to complete the training course your video evaluation needs to
be submitted within 3 months of doing component 2 which is the workshop.

You have the choice of either paying for each component individually or as a total package.
Individual prices:

  • Component 1 : The Knowledge assessment is $195

Can I complete the course with STAP if I have already done components 1 or 2 with a different training provider?

Yes. It is fine if you have completed component 1 or 2 with another training provider but wish to complete the rest of your training through STAP. This is one of the reasons we offer each component at an individual price, as some participants might not need to purchase the entire packaged bundle.
