Continuing Education > LACPA's General Information
Confirmation: Participants will receive confirmation of their enrollment. Programs will start promptly at the time indicated. Please arrive at least one half hour early to register to receive continuing education credit. Late arrivals will not be eligible to receive continuing education units. Programs and locations are subject to change.
Cancellation Policy: To receive a refund, a written request must be received the Monday before the scheduled date of the program. Refunds will be processed within 30 days. A $35 processing fee is deducted from all refunds. Should it become necessary to cancel a course, those who have registered will be notified in writing, and the full course fee will be refunded.
Pre-Registration: Pre-registration is offered until the Monday preceding the program, if space is available.
Same Day Registration: Registration on the day of the program is on a space available basis. It would be prudent to call the LACPA office prior to the day of the course since some workshops become fully subscribed months in advance. A $20 fee will be charged to register on the day of the program, if space is available.
Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance: The Los Angeles County Psychological Association is available to make arrangements for individuals with particular needs. Anyone who requires special accommodation for a disability is requested to notify the LACPA office at least two weeks in advance at 818-905-0410.
Meals: LACPA will provide a continental breakfast during the registration period and afternoon refreshments for each program. In most circumstances, a one-hour lunch period is scheduled for full-day courses. Lunch is not included unless otherwise noted.
Locations: Please check both your program brochure and program confirmation for the location and address of each program.
Documentation of Attendance: Individuals who complete a program in its entirety will receive a Documentation of Attendance. LACPA will replace one lost Documentation of Attendance for a LACPA member each calendar year. If more than one is lost, the charge will be $10 for replacement. Non-members will be charged (no credit card) $10 to replace a lost Documentation of Attendance form.
Certification of Attendance for Continuing Education Credit
These workshops are sponsored by the Los Angeles County Psychological Association (LACPA). LACPA is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. LACPA maintains responsibility for the program and its content. LACPA also is approved by the Board of Behavioral Science as a provider of Continuing Education Units (CEU) for MFTs and LCSWs: Provider No. PCE 276. The licensee is responsible for maintaining records of completed continuing education coursework. LACPA supplies a document that certifies the licensee was present for the entire program and earned the continuing education credits.
It is important to note that APA and BBS continuing education rules require that LACPA only give credit to those who attend the entire workshop. An evaluation of the workshop must be completed. Those who arrive more than 15 minutes for a six hour program, 10 minutes for a four or three hour program, 5 minutes for a two or one and one half hour program; after the scheduled start time or leave before the workshop is complete will not receive CE credit. Partial credit may not be given.
