Section 12(2) & Approved Clinician training courses

The West Midlands and Trent Divisions host a number of induction and refresher courses throughout the year in Birmingham. 

Courses are open to candidates from all professions and have been approved by the Midlands and East of England Approvals Panel. 

Please note: attendance at a course is only one part of the approval process, a course certificate should not be offered or accepted as evidence of approval.  Full attendance on this course is a legal requirement of the process.  As such, we ask that you ensure you arrive on time and stay for the duration of the course.  We cannot issue a certificate of attendance if you leave before the day has finished.  Certificates will be sent electronically after the course.

We advise you to check with your local approvals office for information on the criteria for approval/re-approval, and to confirm which course is suitable for your requirements before making your booking.

The renewal process may take 6-8 weeks (but can take longer).

Please view our cancellation policy should you no longer wish to attend a course.

A two-day course suitable for anyone who is applying for Section 12(2) approval. This course is not suitable for anyone seeking Approved Clinician status.
