There are currently 2,178 psychologists licensed in the state of Georgia. Every psychology license will expire on December 31, 2010 and will be renewable for two years if all requirements for renewal, including continuing education, are satisfied and the renewal fee is paid. Psychologists practicing with an expired license are subject to disciplinary action by the Board.
The following continuing education (CE) requirements apply:
- 40 hours of continuing education are required every 2 years for license renewal (12/31, even years)
- 10 hours are allowed from online or home study coursework offered by an APA-approved provider (considered Area V)
- 3 hours in professional ethics and 3 hours in psychopharmacology are required each renewal (must be live – not allowed from Area V)
- 3 hours in cultural diversity are required for the first renewal only (must be live – not allowed from Area V)
Beginning with the 2010 license renewal, The Georgia Board of Examiners of Psychologists is requiring all licensees to complete and submit the “Continuing Education Report Form.” Visit the Georgia Board of Psychology website for more information.
