Illinois psychologists (PhD, PsyD) are required to take:

  • Twenty-four (24) hours of continuing education (CE) every 2 years, including at least three (3) hours in professional ethics.
  • Effective January 1, 2020, a new law took effect that requires all Illinois licensed professionals who need continuing education to renew their licenses to complete 1 hour of education related to sexual harassment prevention.  Licensees can take this CE course from any CE provider or sponsor that is authorized to provide CE for any profession regulated by IDFPR. This includes businesses or entities that have active CE sponsor licenses for any profession, or that are listed as a ‘pre-approved’ sponsor for any profession.
