Of the 60 hours, 4 hours must be in ethics and 4 hours must be on domestic violence or child abuse. A minimum of 40 hours must be earned in Category 1 credit with APA-approval. All 60 hours may be earned through online/home study courses offered through APA-approved sponsors and that provide a certificate of completion.
