6. Is CE earned on www.e-psychologist.org acceptable to my licensing board?
The National Register has offered free CE to Registrants through The Register Report for several years. However, the National Register was not an APA approved sponsor, and thus the licensing board had to make a decision on the National Register as an acceptable sponsor or review and approve the module on an individual basis. Responding to Registrant feedback about this potential hurdle, the National Register applied for APA Approval as a CE Sponsor in January 2003, and was approved on April 1, 2003 at the first APA CE Sponsor Committee meeting following submission of our application. The committee responded with this language:
CE credits earned through this program will meet the standards for acceptable CE credit in states, territories, or provinces that require continuing education credits for renewal of license.
The National Register is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The National Register maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
