AMHP Maintaining Competence Programme 

Specialist Continued Professional Development Programme

The Mental Health (AMHP) (England) Regulations 2008 requires all  AMHPs to complete at least 18 hours of learning activity every year relevant to their  AMHP work.

An annual refresher training programme is commissioned for  AMHPs maintaining competence which aims to provide a range of complex topics and the interface with the Mental Health Act which will contribute to their continuing professional development (CPD).

There is a reduced rate for members of the local authorities in the Partnership.

Other professionals (managers, doctors and generic social workers, etc) are able to book onto the training at the non-member rate.
