APA Approval

The Oregon Psychological Association is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. OPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Letters of completion will be awarded to participants who attend the entire workshop.  No partial credits are given.

Other Mental Health Agency Approvals

OPA workshops should be satisfactory for Oregon Licensed Social Workers' and LPC's continuing education requirements. Approval for any other licensing or regulatory bodies must be completed by the individual attendee.

Each OPA workshop is classified according to the following system:

Level 1: general or introductory content aimed at a diverse audience.

Level 2: psychologically sophisticated content, at either introductory or more advanced levels, aimed at general professional audiences.

Level 3: highly advanced theoretical or technical content, aimed at expert audiences.

Level 2 and 3 presentations will typically warrant CE credit for a licensed psychologist. Both level and number of hours for each workshop are indicated for each workshop and official letters of completion will be awarded to participants who attend the entire workshop. APA guidelines specify that no letter of attendance will be awarded for partial workshop attendance.

Level 2 and 3 offerings are typically accepted by the Oregon Board of Psychologists (OBOP). However, Oregon licensed psychologists should consult with the Oregon Board of Psychologists regarding the state laws and rules regarding continuing education in Oregon, and note that there is no pre-certification of continuing education credit by the Oregon Board of Psychologists. If you have questions about whether or notOBOP may accept a class for CE credit you can contact them at 503.378.4154.
