Icon for Approved CE Sponsors
The CESA icon is a way to distinguish and promote sponsors who have approved CE sponsor status, so that it can be clearly noted in your promotional materials and websites that you have been recognized by APA for delivering high-quality education. Please visit the CESA icon webpage to obtain the icon and additional information about its appropriate use.
In August 2012, the APA Council of Representatives approved the revised “Approval of Sponsors of Continuing Education for Psychologists: Policies and Procedures.” The APA Office of CE Sponsor Approval, the Continuing Education Committee and all organizations that are approved or interested in approval by the APA will be operating under the revised policies. The standards of the Office of CE Sponsor Approval have not been changed.
In February 2009, the APA Council of Representatives approved the revised “Standards and Criteria for Approval of Sponsors of Continuing Education for Psychologists.”
