HB15-1067 - Continuing Professional Development Psychologists

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Establishment Of A Continuing Professional Development Program For Licensed Psychologists.

The bill requires a licensed psychologist to complete continuing professional development and educational hours to maintain his or her license as a psychologist. The state board of psychologist examiners (board) is required to adopt rules establishing a continuing professional development program that includes:

  • The development, execution, and documentation of a learning plan;
  • A requirement that every 2 years a psychologist complete at least 40 hours of continuing professional development; and
  • A requirement that the psychologist maintain documentation of the continuing professional development hours.

The bill allows the board to audit up to 5% of licensed psychologists each 2-year cycle to determine compliance with the requirements. The bill clarifies that the records of assessments or other documentation in connection with the continuing professional development are confidential.
