Continuing Education Requirement

Attention Virginia Psychologists: Due to impacts from COVID-19, the Board will grant a one-year continuing education extension to all licensees. As a result, unless you are newly licensed and not required to complete continuing education requirements this year, each licensee will have until June 30, 2021 to complete the required CEs. Please note that you are still required to renew your license on June 30, 2020. Also, please note that this extension does not apply to those individuals who must complete CEs as part of a Board order.

Psychologists are required 14 hours each year, 8 of which may be completed by home study. A minimum of 1.5 of the 14 hours must be in ethics each year.
