Basisaantekening Psychodiagnostiek

The Dutch Association for Psychologists (in Dutch: NIP) issues the so called Basic Certificate in Psychodiagnostics (Dutch: Basisaantekening Psychodiagnostiek, BAPD, in Dutch). Obtaining this certificate is required for most positions in clinical settings in the Netherlands. Also, it is recommended to be admitted to the postmaster's programme Health Care Psychologist (in Dutch: GZ-opleiding) that qualifies you to work as a licensed psychologist in the Netherlands.

How to meet the BAPD requirements?

When you started your bachelor's programme in 2019-2020 or 2020-2021, you have to choose the bachelor and master's courses as stated in this accreditation (pdf, 127 kB) by NIP (2020, in Dutch).
