The accreditation committee meets on an annual basis, four times a year, in order to advise the Executive on recommendations for membership.  On receiving your application, an initial screening is undertaken by the administrator to check that all component parts of the application form have been forwarded for processing and you will be advised on this.

Your Application will then be assessed by an individual appointed by the appraisal committee and recommendations forwarded with your application for final consideration. In the event that information is considered incomplete at this stage, you will be advised of this prior to it being forwarded to the accreditation committee for their decision.

In the event of your application being refused you have the right to appeal within a ten day period (see Appeals Procedures under Policies and Procedures). Where applicants are refused membership they may not re-apply for membership for a 12 month period from their refusal date and must advise APCP of their former decision.

When applying to APCP for membership you are required to pay a processing fee as follows:

Student €25

All other cateogories €40 * -(*Superivion applicants please see indivial form for more details.)

Please note that this fee is solely for processing purposes and is non refundable.
