PsyBA Master Classes

Psychologists wishing to maintain their Psychology Board of Australia Supervisor (BAS) approval status 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 training.

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

On successful completion of your master class with CSS, you will be issued with a certificate to provide to AHPRA.
