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 10-1-2014, you must register and earn 23 CE including at least 4 in ethics/cultural competency.
  • If your license date is BETWEEN 10-1-2014 and 9-30-2015, you must register and earn 13 CE including at least 4 in ethics/cultural competency.
  • If your license date is 10-1-2015 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 2016-2018 biennium. You will do that in July 2016.
  • If you require a waiver from obtaining CE, contact the State Board of Psychology at 614-466-8808 or visit their website.

Click here to register online with OPA-MCE. If you do not have a profile, you may create one. The system will calculate how many CE you need in the current biennium and how much you owe based on your license date.
