COVID-19 Notice:

The Board of Psychologists and Psychological Examiners is meeting frequently to assess and review how to address Continuing Education (CE). At this time, with licensing renewal in 2021, we are not adjusting CE requirements, but are monitoring the situation and will adapt as needed.

For those providing Tele-Services please view the APA Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology.

We encourage practitioners to be familiar with telepsychology guidelines and consider courses in telehealth and/or telepsychology and COVID-19. This is not a requirement and the Board is not endorsing a particular course or company. Visit AK-PA COVID-19 Resources for Practice Webpage or the APA Pandemic Webpage for links to a variety of resources.

The Board of Psychologists and Psychological Associate Examiners is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing. The Board consists of three psychologists, one psychological associate, and one public member. Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The Board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of psychology in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The Board meets three times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas are available from the licensing examiner.
