IDAHO BOARD OF PSYCHOLOGIST EXAMINERS 


License Renewal

Applications to renew your license must be made before your expiration date each year in order for your license to remain valid. Annual Renewals for Service Extenders and Supervisors

License renewal applications are mailed approximately six (6) weeks before the license expiration date. This renewal notice is sent to your mailing address on record. If you do not receive a renewal notice, you may contact the Bureau to confirm your address and have a duplicate notice sent to you.  

When submitting your renewal application to the Bureau office, you must include responses to all questions, your signature, and payment of the appropriate fee(s) before the expiration of your license. 

NOTE: If you fail to renew your license before its expiration date a reinstatement fee will be required by �67-2614, Idaho Code and cannot be waived. In addition, you may be required to submit continuing education or other required documentation prior to the reinstatement of your license.   

The most efficient way to submit your renewal application and payment of fees is through the ONLINE renewal system. There are no additional fees for this service.

 

As a part of the current renewal period, the Board would like to draw your attention to the rules governing the employment of psychology service extenders.

Please note that licensed psychologists who utilize service extenders must comply with the rules for registering them with the Board within thirty days after employment. Additionally, the Board must be notified, in writing, within thirty days of the termination of the employment of any service extender. Of particular concern at this renewal time is the impact of Board Rule 450.03. "Conditions for Use of Service Extenders." This rule specifically addresses the requirements for any psychologist who utilizes service extenders.

Documentation of supervisory contact, hours of supervision, hours of extender services, and plan of supervision shall be maintained by the supervisor for not less than three (3) years for each service extender and submitted to the Board upon request.

The Board recommends that supervisors use the Weekly Supervisory Notes form and the Annual Supervisory Log form as aids in meeting the reporting requirements.

PLEASE BE ADVISED, ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS RULE COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF YOUR ABILITY TO UTILIZE SERVICE EXTENDERS AND/OR THE FILING OF A DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDING AGAINST YOUR LICENSE.


Continuing Education

The annual completion of 20 hours of continuing education (CE) is required to maintain a license to practice psychology in Idaho.  Newly licensed individuals will be considered to have satisfied the CE requirements for the remainder of the year in which their license is granted.  The guidelines for acceptable CE credits are summarized below.  Complete guidelines may be found in Rule 401. -  402. of the Administrative Rules.


AUDITS

The Board conducts annual audits to ensure compliance with the continuing education requirements.  Audits may be initiated anytime after you renew your license.  By signing your renewal application, and answering "Yes" to the question that you have met the continuing education requirements, you are certifying to the Board that you have already obtained proof of having completed the required continuing education. 

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET MET THE CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT, DO NOT SUBMIT A RENEWAL APPLICATION INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE.  Submitting a fraudulent application for licensure is grounds for discipline against your license.

If you are audited, you must submit a listing of all continuing education courses completed during the previous year AND proof of attendance documentation for each course.  Continuing education courses not claimed for CE credit in the current renewal year, may be credited for the next renewal year. A maximum of twenty (20) hours may be carried forward from the immediately preceding year. If you are audited and you carried forward hours, you must submit complete documentation for both the audit period and for the previous year.

Failure to submit the required documentation may result in the Board taking disciplinary action against your license. 

You should review the the Board rules regarding continuing education before signing up for any continuing education offerings.

If you have questions about the CE requirements, you may e-mail the Bureau office or call (208) 334-3233. 

CE providers may obtain Board approval by submitting a completed Continued Education Approval Form.
