CPA Office of Professional Development Provider Approval System (PAS)

To renew a California Psychology license requires each psychologist to obtain 36 hours of continuing education from approved CE Sponsors. CPA is recognized by the CA Board of Psychology to approve CE Sponsors.

CPA's PAS is specifically designed to support mid-size and smaller CE Providers that operate within the state. We have a responsive staff and a dedicated group of professionals to provide a peer review service in support of your educational program.

In addition to the BOP's regulated standards, CPA holds that continuing professional development (CPD) is an ongoing process of life long learning which includes activities that:

  1. are relevant to psychological practice, education and science;
  2. enable psychologists to keep pace with emerging issues and technologies; and
  3. allow psychologists to maintain, develop, broaden and increase competencies in order to improve services to the public and enhance contributions to the profession.
