Psychologists in CA are required to earn 36 hours of continuing education (CE) every 2 years.
- 27 of the 36 credits can be taken online.
- 9 of the 36 credits must be “live.” (Programs like webinars in which there is interaction with the instructor in real time, such as instant messaging, are considered “live.”)
Ethics: CA psychologists are required to keep current on issues related to law and ethics. However, they are no longer required to take a specific number of ethics credits. It is now up to the psychologist to determine how this information is obtained, for example, via CE courses, home study, grand rounds, etc. See our extensive catalog of ethics courses at Course Catalog.
Pursuant to §1387, licensed psychologists who supervise psychological assistants, interns, etc. must complete a minimum of six hours of supervision coursework every two years.
CE Approval for California Psychologists: The CA Board of Psychology accepts continuing education courses offered by APA (American Psychological Association) approved sponsors. At Health is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. At Health maintains responsibility for the programs and their content.
