Unless otherwise noted, accreditation workshops are open to anyone and are not restricted to conference attendees.

If you are interested in attending any of the below workshops, you must preregister with our office.

  • *Continuing Education (CE) credits: Each participant attending the full workshop receives 7.5 CE credits for licensed psychologists, and the Office of Accreditation pays those fees. You will be mailed your certificate a few weeks after the workshop.

  • There is especially a need in the site visitor corps for generalists (psychologists in areas other than clinical, counseling, and school).

  • The CoA makes a special effort to ensure diversity among site visitors. Therefore, the commission strongly encourages the nomination of women and members of underrepresented groups.
