ABOUT THE SUPERVISOR FULL TRAINING PACKAGE
 

Psychologists wanting to become PsyBA approved supervisors need to complete Supervisor Full Training, consisting of three components completed in sequence (Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3). Once all three components are successfully completed, participants can apply for supervisor accreditation effective for 5 years. Participants are advised to consult the PsyBA Supervisor Training requirements prior to enrolling.

Supervisor Full Training consists of:

  • Part 1: Online Knowledge assessment. Part 1 requires 8-10 hours of self-directed preparatory work relating to knowledge of best-practice supervision and knowledge of relevant Board codes, guidelines and policies.
    The Online Knowledge Assessment is accessed via secure login on the CSS website. The course includes reading relevant material provided online, completing self-directed learning tasks, reflection of practice and a multiple choice assessment test. Completion of Part 1 requires passing the online assessment with a minimum 80% pass grade. Part 1 must be completed BEFORE Part 2.
     
  • Part 2: Skills training workshop. Part 2 is a two-day skills workshop focusing 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. The workshop is currently conducted via interactive videoconference. Successful completion of Part 1 is a prerequisite for attending Part 2.
     
  • Part 3: Competency-based assessment and evaluation. In Part 3, participants are required 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. You have six (6) months from the time you have completed Part 2 (2-day workshop) to submit your Part 3 task.

This online learning provides psychologists with the fundamental knowledge required for competency-based supervision covering the required knowledge to be an approved supervisor of psychologists.
