In addition, non-psychologist professionals and graduate students are eligible to receive a certificate of attendance. Each intensive training weekend is worth 13.5 CE; provided by the Southwest Institute for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (SIAP).  SIAP is approved by the American Psychological Association Office of Continuing Education to sponsor continuing education for psychologists.  SIAP maintains responsibility for the program and its content.

It is the MSCP degree Program’s responsibility to verify the identity and qualifications of all non-student psychologists seeking CE credits through NMSU.  Non-student psychologists requesting to register for trainings must first email the Training Director, Dr. Casey McDougall, at clm-rxp@nmsu.edu for permission of attendance.  They must also provide an active driver’s license and active/unrestricted psychologist license.  Non-student prescribing/medical psychologists must also include an active/unrestricted prescribing psychologist license, controlled substance #, and DEA number.

Non-student psychologists and non-psychologists are eligible to register for archived (asynchronous) and upcoming synchronous live, online training.
