Category A vs. Category B

The NC Psychology Board distinguishes between Category A courses and Category B courses. This is is summarized in the Board’s “CE 101 document” (

  • The program is sponsored by CE Learning Systems LLC, an APA-approved CE sponsor.

One more point applies to most of our courses, but not all: to qualify for Category A credits, a program must specifically identify psychologists in the target audience statement. This statement will be found under the heading Recommended For on the details page for any course. If psychologists are not identified specifically, or if there is no Recommended For heading for that course, then the course does not qualify for Category A credit. However it would qualify for Category B credit.
