Organizations that meet the criteria, can apply for CoE status. The fee for the application is $1,500 for organizations with less than 25 group therapists and $2,500 for organizations with more than 25 group therapists. On-site survey expenses will be additionally billed. The fees are non-refundable to cover administrative costs.
- CGP Approval for Staff: Organizations that assist their staff in meeting the CGP requirements and maintaining their competence level for recertification can also establish an annual fee to cover all new staff CGP applications and staff two year recertification costs.
Organizations that do not yet meet the CoE criteria may want to partner with IBCGP to establish a CoE training partnership. Under this partnership, the CoE application fee is waived until Center of Excellence approval can be pursued.
The CoE Training Partnership includes:
- CGP Approval for Staff: Staff of the approved organization applying for the CGP will receive the discounted $325 application fee rate along with a complimentary initial year of AGPA membership; if staff are already AGPA members, their CGP application fee will be $200. Organizations that assist their staff in meeting the CGP requirements and maintaining their competence level for recertification can consult with IBCGP to establish an annual fee to cover all new staff CGP applicants and staff two year recertification costs.
- Scholarships: The organization will receive priority consideration for scholarships to the AGPA Annual Institute and Conference.
- Access to AGPA Training and Continuing Education: AGPA will be available on a contract basis to serve as a partner for providing education that may include AGPA published training manuals for self-study, distance learning courses, and/or on-site training.
The fee for this training partnership is negotiated through the AGPA Community Outreach Agency Training Contract Program.
