PBANZ NEWS: APC Process starts Wednesday 4th August

Kia Ora,


Please be advised that from Wednesday 4th August psychotherapists will be able to start the Annual Practising Certificate (APC) renewal process for the 2010/2011 practising year.


To renew your APC you will need to log into your personal profile using your email address and password https://secure.pbanz.org.nz/index.php?LogIn  You MUST be logged in to have access to the APC renewal process.  If you completed your registration manually, please contact the Board's Registrar on 04 9184727. 


All practitioners must advise the Board of their practice intentions each year, once logged on your options will be:

1. Renew your APC for the 2010/2011 practising year (1st October 2010 – 30th September 2011)

2. Retain your name on the Registrar of Psychotherapists as a non-practising practitioner. 

If you hold a non practising status this means that you have no entitlement to work as a psychotherapist or state or do anything this is calculated to suggest that you are or willing to practise as a psychotherapist.  Note: If you hold a non-practising status for three years or longer you will be required to undergo a competency assessment prior to your next APC being issued (should you apply for one).

3. Request to have your name removed from the Registrar of Psychotherapists.


All practitioners must choose one of the three options above and provide the Board with their completed application prior to midnight on Friday 1st October 2010.  Your application will be dated as received once your application is 'complete'.  An application is considered completed when:
