Supervision in North Carolina

All Applicants, Provisionally Licensed Psychologists, and Licensed Psychological Associates are required to have a Supervision Contract Form on file at all times, regardless of employment setting or activities in which the individual may, or may not, currently be engaged (e.g., unemployment, practice in-state, practice out-of-state, work in another field, etc.).  A Supervision Contract Form must be filed within 30 days of a change in, or termination of, the conditions of the existing contract on file with the Board.  Contracts cover current activities.

Required Supervision Course from the NC Psychology Board

The NC Psychology Board's Online Supervisor Training Course can now be found online.  

All licensees of the NC Psychology Board who engage in the Board-required supervision of an applicant for licensure, an LPA, a provisionally licensed psychologist, or a licensed psychologist who is under a consent order, must complete a one-time, three-hour online supervisor training course, which includes a very brief examination.

I Do Not Provide Supervision: Do I have to take the course?  

Licensees who currently are not providing Board-required supervision to applicants for licensure, LPAs, provisionally licensed psychologists, or licensed psychologists who are under a consent order, but may do so in the future, will need to complete the online training course before they will be approved by the Board to provide such supervision.  Licensees who do not currently provide Board-required supervision and do not plan to do so in the future may still take the training course, as all licensees who complete the training course and pass the brief examination can count three hours of Category A continuing education for the renewal period in which the training is completed.
