Section 12 and Approved Clinician Training

Refresher courses

If your Approved Clinician or Section 12 approval period is due to expire before 31 January 2021, you will be granted a 12 month extension period. Read further details on the temporary extension

Due to the extension being offered, we are not currently running any refresher courses. Please register your interest to receive updates on future courses.


Induction courses

Our current online Section 12 (2) and Approved Clinician Induction courses are now both SOLD OUT.


Please note: Attending one of these courses is only part of the process to becoming accredited.

Please ensure that you have activated your individual link before the courses launch on the 1 July (Section 12 (2)) and 15 July (Approved Clinician).

We would strongly advise you to check with your local  NHS Specialist Mental Health Approvals Lead for information on the criteria for approval/re-approval, and to confirm which course is suitable for your requirements before registering for a course.


If you have any queries, please read our Approved Clinician FAQs or Section 12 FAQs . If you can't find the answer to your question there, please contact
