Continuing Education Requirements for Psychologists

  • Licensing and continuing education requirements are on a state-by-state basis.

  • We hope to provide information to help psychologists in all states with their continuing education requirements over time. If you are interested in how the Psychiatry & Psychotherapy Podcast can meet your licensing needs, please email and let me know what state you are practicing in.

  • California Board of Psychology

    • 36 hours of continuing education (CE) are required for each 2-year renewal period.

    • 25% of the hours must be “live” or involve real time interaction with the instructor.

    • Courses must be an hour long to comply with CE requirements.

    • The Board of Psychology recognizes and accepts for continuing education credit courses which are provided by certain entities, including the ACCME.

      • The Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Podcast activities are provided through a joint providership with University of California Irvine School of Medicine, which is an ACCME accredited provider.

    • Psychologists self-certify the number of hours they have completed on the renewal form. Licensees must retain their records for 4 years, as the Board conducts random audits and may contact the licensee for proof of completion.

      • We suggest saving all certificates. If however, you lose a certificate, please contact us at

    • The Psychiatry & Psychotherapy Podcast currently has several episodes and quizzes which comply with the California Board of Psychology’s requirements, for a total of 9.25 hrs of continuing education. New episodes and quizzes will be added consistently!
