 I certify, on behalf of the CE Provider Organization that completed this application that the preceding statements are true and I understand that any false statements may result in denial or revocation of approval. I have also read and understand the OPA-MCE Provider Guidelines and Policies. Our organization agrees to comply with all OPA-MCE regulations and policies. In addition, our organization agrees to maintain the highest ethical standards as stated in the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Finally our organization agrees to fulfill the spirit of all standards relating to equal opportunity and equal access. 


An OPA-MCE Provider application fee in the amount of $700 is due from non-profit organizations and  $900 from for-profit organizations, made payable to OPA-MCE. For the period of September 1, 2016- August 31, 2018, additional fees will be due if more than 20 courses are offered, based on the fee schedule below. Your organization may either pay the additional fees in advance or the OPA-MCE Office will invoice you at the end of the biennium for additional fees based on the number of courses you offer.

For those organizations who pay the application fee in full, the OPA-MCE Program will offer a 5% discount on the application fee, making the total for the two-year contract period $665 for non-profit organizations and $855 for for-profit organizations. For those organizations that wish to pay in installments, they may make two equal payments of $350 (non-profit organization) or $450 (for-profit organization) during the contract period. The first installment is due with the application and the second installment is due by September 1, 2017.

These additional fees are above and beyond the $700/$900 registration fee. Again, the $700/$900
registration allows providers to offer a maximum of 20 courses with no additional fees.
