CE Credit Information
Attendees who attend the entire conference are eligible for up to 12 CE hours.
OPA is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to offer
continuing education for psychologists. OPA maintains responsibility for the
program. Letters of completion will be awarded to participants
who attend the entire part of the conference they registered for.
No partial credits will be given. This conference should meet approval
for Oregon licensed social workers’ and LPC’s continuing
education requirements. Oregon licensed psychologists should
consult the official continuing education guidelines produced by the
Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners and note that
there is no pre-certification of continuing education credit by the
Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners.
In an effort to minimize paper waste, the traditional
printed copies of course handouts will not be
provided on-site at the Conference.
Instead, course handouts will be available
online at www.opa.org one week prior to the Conference
for registered attendees to download.
