Continuing Education Requirements:
Credentials are renewed every 5 years, and requires a minimum of 6 credits, either college level or professional development, with 15 contact hours equaling 1 credit. This includes a minimum of one clock hour of suicide awareness and prevention training. These can be through professional organizations or other trainings/workshops that are related to school psychology. Maintenance of the NCSP credential will also fulfill renewal requirements. A 10-year, ‘one time’ credential is awarded for someone just completing a master’s program.
National Association of School Psychologists (NASP)
CE4Less is not an approved provider for NASP. However, NASP does accept up to 25 credit hours from “Self-Study” that don’t need NASP approval.
Sequenced Programs are self-studies developed and published to provide training in specific knowledge or skill areas. A test is typically given at the end of the course and usually a certificate of completion is issued. This can include courses taken on the Internet.
25 CPD credits may be earned from CE4Less.com, since our courses are considered sequenced programs. You should be able to answer “yes” to the following four questions about the course you take:
- Did the activity enhance or upgrade my professional skills or add to my knowledge base?
- Was the activity relevant to the professional practice of school psychology?
- Did the activity fit into my personal plan for continuing professional development?
- Did the activity go beyond the ordinary aspects of my employment?
