Ethics, 1.00 CE credit hour

Three (3) of the forty (40) hours must be on professional ethics and Florida Statutes and rules affecting the practice of psychology. Of those three hours, at least one hour shall be on professional ethics, and at least one hour shall be on Florida laws and rules relevant to the practice of psychology and shall include Chapters 456 and 490, F.S. and Rule Title 64B19, F.A.C.

Florida Statutes and Rules, 1.00 CE credit hour

Three (3) of the forty (40) hours must be on professional ethics and Florida Statutes and rules affecting the practice of psychology. Of those three hours, at least one hour shall be on professional ethics, and at least one hour shall be on Florida laws and rules relevant to the practice of psychology and shall include Chapters 456 and 490, F.S. and Rule Title 64B19, F.A.C.

Domestic Violence, 0.00 CE credit hours

Every third renewal, you must complete a two hour continuing education course on domestic violence.

“Domestic violence” means any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member.

Prevention of Medical Errors, 2.00 CE credit hours

Two (2) of the forty (40) hours must relate to prevention of medical errors, including a study of root-cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety. If the course is offered by a facility licensed pursuant to chapter 395 for its employees, the Board will approve up to one (1) hour of the two (2) hour course to be specifically related to error reduction and prevention methods used in that facility.

The Board of School Psychology does not allow continuing education providers approved by another Board within MQA to offer Medical Errors courses as complementary. The only exception is when the course is also approved for Medical Errors for Psychology. We do have a Medical Errors course approved for Psychology. The ONLY course we have available for psychologist is course 101522, “Medical (Behavioral Healthcare Practice) Errors.”
