How to Submit a Proposal to Offer CE’s to SCP Members for Attending Your Workshop

All proposals for Continuing Education (CE) must be reviewed by the Division 17 CE Committee.

Instructions for requesting approval of a CE proposal through Division 17 of the APA:

  • STEP 1: At least 6 weeks prior to the date of the CE, please submit the following via email to the CE Committee Chair:
    1. Summary for each CE workshop, including:
      1. Title
      2. Presenter(s) and credentials
      3. # of hours / amount of CE
    2. Description of the workshop (usually about one paragraph; be sure to include intended audience)
    3. Measurable, observable Learning Objectives
    4. Assessment items that match Learning Objectives
    5. A current CV for each of the presenters
    6. Please see the documents SAMPLE SUMMARY (.doc) and APA STANDARDS AND CRITERIA 2015 (.pdf) for guidance.
  • STEP 2: Be patient as the CE Committee reviews your proposal. We like to have these returned to you within about two weeks. It is likely that you will be asked to make revisions for clarity and to adhere to APA guidelines for CE.
  • STEP 3: Make revisions and re-submit to the CE Committee Chair. Often, unless significant revisions are necessary, the Chair can determine that all requested changes have been made and provide approval within one week.
  • STEP 4: Offer the CE workshop. Whether the workshop is online or face-to-face, the following are required.
    1. Attendance: Please keep a record of all attendees. Within two weeks of the CE workshop, provide to the CE Committee Chair a list with attendees’ names, city/state, email, and whether the attendee is a psychologist (yes/no).
    2. Evaluation: Anyone who receives CE must complete an evaluation of the workshop. This evaluation should include standard items as well as items that were tailored specifically for this workshop (the Assessment items that were approved with your proposal). Within two weeks of the CE workshop, provide to the CE Committee Chair a summary of the evaluation data (NOT raw data) with means for each item.
    3. Please see the documents SAMPLE EVALUATION (.doc) and SAMPLE ATTENDANCE SHEET (.doc) for guidance.
    4. Please provide the CE Committee Chair with any promotional materials you used to advertise the CE workshop.  (This is a fairly new requirement from APA).
  • STEP 5: Attendees should be provided a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the CE Workshop. Work with the CE Committee Chair to develop a certificate of completion. Certificate should abide by general guidelines, including specific language, logo, and a signature line for the CE Committee Chair.
