Re: ARTP Accreditation - Clinicians have until 2021 to become accredited and there are various ways to do it.
Most people can attain competency by attending training, applying their learning into the clinical setting and then being assessed as competent by the ARTP by doing an online assessment under ARTP's Experienced Practitioner Scheme.
The course costs £180.00 per delegate to attend or £0.00 for delegates outside of the restrictions described above.
