Certificate in Play Therapy
To earn this certificate, you must complete 9 semester units (minimum of 150 hours of coursework) over a two-year period to meet the Association for Play Therapy’s instructional-hours requirement toward becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) or Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S).
To be eligible for registration as an RPT, students must complete the certificate program and be enrolled in, or have completed, a graduate clinical degree program that enables graduates to be eligible for licensure.
Students who complete the coursework without an appropriate graduate clinical degree can still obtain the certificate from APU, but will not be eligible for registration as an RPT with the Association for Play Therapy.
