Board of Examiners of Psychologists

The South Dakota Board of Examiners of Psychologists recently passed administrative rules, updating to cite the most recent code of ethics of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), and adding a chapter that sets a minimum continuing education requirement, defines a continuing education unit, provides guidance on courses eligible for continuing education credit, provides guidance on documentation needed for continuing education, and provides for an exception to the requirements where applicable. The administrative rules on continuing education are effective for the current licensure period ending June 30, 2021. Communication regarding the continuing education requirements along with a copy of the administrative rules was mailed to all licensees on October 13, 2020.


The Board is working to assist you during this unprecedented time. Please email or call if you have any questions
