Learn about upcoming events of interest to continuing education sponsors

The Office of Continuing Education Sponsor Approval (CESA) was created by APA to facilitate psychologists’ access to CE programs offered by organizations that have met the Standards and Criteria for Approval of Sponsors of Continuing Education for Psychologists.

Upcoming events

The next application deadline for organizations interested in becoming an APA-approved sponsor is February 1, 2010. 

In an effort to better serve approved sponsors and new applicants, the CESA office has developed a new online system. The new system will go into effect on August 1, 2010. At that time, the office will no longer accept hard copy applications or other subsequent documents relevant to APA-approved sponsors. 

  • CESA and the Continuing Education Committee are planning to offer the 1st Annual Conference for CE Sponsors on August 11, 2010, during the preconference program at the APA convention in San Diego, CA. 

  • CESA has organized a list of APA-approved CE sponsors who are willing to cosponsor with nonapproved organizations seeking to offer CE credits to psychologists. This new list serves as a replacement for the one-time Course Approval Application, which has been discontinued.
