The MCE committee has the responsibility of insuring that OPA approved CE activities are of sound quality and post-graduate level information via our review of submissions for single course reviews and approved provider applications. The profession of psychology continues to grow and mature, spanning many exciting areas of knowledge and practice! In addition, technology has provided more options for learning and attending CE trainings and workshops. If you have an interest in helping shape the practice and preserving the integrity of quality continuing education of psychologists, please join this committee of motivated psychologists by contacting Beth Wherley at: email@example.com
