Supervisor Training Workshops


From July, 2018, placement supervisors for students in APAC accredited courses in one of the 9 areas of practice endorsement will need to have both Area of Practice Endorsement and to have completed Board Approved Supervisor training. This has been a PsyBA standard since 2013 but flexibly applied to allow time for compliance but will be required from the above date.

To assist with this Board Approved Supervisor requirement, the College has created subsidised training places for eligible Organisational Psychologists to undertake Board Approved Supervisor training through the APS Institute.

To meet this need, the College of Organisational Psychologists has created two great new CPD opportunities. Significant discounts are available for APS and College Members.


Opportunity 1 (Master Class) is for existing Board Approved Supervisors:

Many existing Board Approved Supervisors still need to complete a Master Class before the end of June 2018 to maintain their Board Approved status. The College has arranged with the APS Institute to conduct a Master Class for existing Board Approved Supervisors on July 12th 2017, the day before the beginning of the IOP Conference in Sydney. Normally costing up to $510, this event will be provided at the discounted rate of $50 for existing Board Supervisors. With this workshop consisting entirely of organisational psychologists, this training will be relevant and timely for existing supervisors.


  • Must hold Area of Practice endorsement in Organisational Psychology
  • Must already be a Board Accredited Supervisor

Opportunity 2 (Supervisor Training Program) is for existing Organisational Psychologists interested in becoming Board Approved Supervisors:

This opportunity provides financial support for the Supervisor Training Program. The Program consists of three components:

  • Part 1: An online knowledge assessment, which must be completed before July 2017
  • Part 2: A two-day skills-based training workshop, to be held on July 11-12 2017 in Sydney before the IOP conference
  • Part 3: A competency-based video assessment and evaluation completed following the two-day workshop.

These subsidised places substantially reduce the total cost of the training, which normally costs in excess of $1200. The total costs of the training are: $130 for College Members, $299 for APS Members, and $699 for non-APS Members. Initial payments for complete enrolment in the course should be paid to the APS, with receipt of the subsidy contingent upon completion of all 3 course components, including the July 11-12 workshop.


  • Must hold Area of Practice endorsement in Organisational Psychology (or be close to finishing the registrar program)
  • Not already a Board Accredited Supervisor
