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 your license date is 10-1-2017 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 2018-2020 biennium. You will do that in July 2018.
- If you require a waiver from obtaining CE, contact the State Board of Psychology at 614-466-8808 or visit their website.
