Continuing Education Credit Program

The Westchester Center for Psychological Education (WCPE), the Education Committee and Board of Accreditation of the WCPA, is approved by the American Psychological Association as a sponsor of Continuing Education in Psychology. Throughout the year, the WCPE sponsors credit courses, workshops and lectures on topics of interest in the field of psychology to both members of WCPA as well as non-members.

The process for rolling out mandatory Continuing Education (CE) requirements for psychologists in New York is underway, despite the pandemic. The proposed amendment with detailed regulations was released on September 3, 2020. Click here to see the proposed regulations in full.

Timeline for next steps:

  • September 20, 2020: Notice of the proposed regulations published in the State Register, which triggers the 60-day public comment period required under the State Administrative Procedure Act.
  • December 2020: Final proposed regulations will be presented to the NYS Board of Regents for anticipated adoption.
  • January 1, 2021: Proposed regulations become effective.

WCPE is ready to offer continuing education credits and to keep the membership abreast of advances in psychological theory and technique, as well as meet state requirements.
