SWEP Practitioner Re-credentialing

What is SWEP re-credentialing?

Re-credentialing is the process of periodically reviewing and verifying credentials to ensure a practitioner continues to meet SWEP's requirements and standards applicable to one or more categories or areas of practice. This includes maintenance of roles, experience, mileage, currency, complexity and ongoing learning. 

SWEP credentialing operates under a five year re-credentialing cycle, which for many practitioners will be June 2022. 

Please note that upgrading or adding a category to your credentialing profile resets your credentialing cycle for another five years. This includes applying for the TAC Capacity and Performance Evaluation (CAPE) category.

How do I re-credential?

When it is time for you to re-credential, SWEP will send you an email with information to guide you through the process. If you believe that you are due for re-credentialing, but have not been contacted perhaps due to changed contact details or place of employment, please email SWEP at swepcredentialing@bhs.org.au to inquire. 

The diagram below provides a summary of what you will need to do when you are contacted by SWEP to re-credential.

What happens if I don't do anything? 

Practitioners who do not engage with the re-credentialing process will have their SWEP registration profile made inactive. This means you will not be able to submit applications through SWEP and you will be expected to reapply for your SWEP practitioner credentialing status in order to reactive your registration. This will include providing evidence of your threshold credentials, as well as an experience and currency statement to demonstrate how you meet the standard for amber and/or red level credentialing.

SWEP looks forward to supporting you through the process when it is time for you to re-credential. 

Any questions related to re-credentialing can be sent to swepcredentialing@bhs.org.au
