Louisiana Psychologists CE Requirements, Accreditations & Approvals

Louisiana Psychologists

Continuing Education (CE) credits for psychologists are provided through the co-sponsorship of the American Psychological Association (APA) Office of Continuing Education in Psychology (CEP). The APA CEP Office maintains responsibility for the content of the programs.

The Louisiana State Board of Examiners of Psychologists accepts courses from any provider who is approved by the American Psychological Association.

Continuing Education Requirement

Attention Louisiana Psychologists: For the 2020 renewal period, the Board is waiving the requirement that continuing professional development (CPD) credits must be obtained from at least two different subcategories under the LAC 803. Licensees may obtain all CPD credits from activities in one of the nine subcategories, including Approved Sponsored CE, or APA sponsored home study courses. Additionally, for both the 2018-2020 and 2019-2021 renewal periods, the Board has reduced the number of required CPD credits from 40 to 30. For more information, please visit http://www.lsbep.org/.

Psychologists are required 40 hours every two years, 12 hours of which may be completed by home study. A minimum of 2 hours must be in ethics or forensics.
