Newly Licensed Psychologists

The Ohio Revised Code mandates that ALL licensed psychologists in Ohio must register with either OPA-MCE or the Ohio School Psychologists Association-MCE (OSPA-MCE) to have their continuing education (CE) hours tracked. For psychologists licensed over the previous two years, the required number of hours varies based on your license date:

  • If you were licensed BEFORE 10-1-2012, you must register and earn 23 CE including at least 3 in ethics.
  • If your license date is BETWEEN 10-1-2012 and 9-30-2013, you must register and earn 13 CE including at least 3 in ethics.
  • If your license date is 10-1-2013 or AFTER, you are exempt from earning continuing education hours in the current biennium. You will not need to register with OPA-MCE until the 2014-2016 biennium. You will do that in July, 2014.
  • If you require a waiver from obtaining CE, contact the State Board of Psychology at 614-466-8808 or visit their website.
