Alabama licensed psychologists have an annual license renewal deadline of October 15th, with continuing education credits due by September 30th. Twenty (20) hours of board-approved continuing education are required to renew a license. The board recognizes The American Psychological Association as a provider of continuing education courses for Alabama psychologists.
Continuing education has a main objective of assuring high standards for the practice of psychology in requiring licensees to participate in ongoing educational activities. Utilizing these experiences, licensees can add to their competence and knowledge gained through prior education and training.
Professional Development Resources is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Professional Development Resources maintains responsibility for all programs and content. Alabama psychologists can earn 20 hours of their required hours through online coursework offered at http://www.pdresources.org/.
Requirements for Continuing Education
All licensees are required, as a license renewal condition, to complete a minimum of 20 hours of continuing educational activities per licensure/renewal period every year.
