Training standards

Certificate and diploma fees

WAPP charges a certification fee for every issued certificate. The fees are graded according to the completed level of PPT education and to the financial level of the country, in which the course was attended.

Below please find the costs for the certificates to be paid to the World Association for Positive Psychotherapy (WAPP).

The amount of the administration fee is based on the categories defined by the World Bank regarding each country’s economic situation. Please learn the details in Costs of Certificates and Diplomas of Positive Psychotherapy

Please note that until further notice all Eastern European countries, which are listed by the World Bank as category A countries, will be counted as category B countries (due to the economic situation of January 2023).

Please also note that the fees for the “(European) Certified Positive Psychotherapist” include one year of WAPP membership. Graduates who are already WAPP members and have paid their fee for the according year get a 25 EUR discount on their certificate fee (after training part II).

The costs for participating in the training seminar will be charged additionally by the local organizers of the seminars.
