NCSP renewal questions
How will I receive my documented NASP- and APA-approved CPD credit(s)?
After you complete the session, the evaluation form, and the content quiz (if applicable), you will be able to print your documentation of attendance from your computer. To do this, login to your account, and click on "My Account". Click on the "Certificate of Completion" button or link, and your documentation should open up.
How does this count toward renewing my NCSP?
NCSPs must obtain a total of 75 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) during every three-year renewal cycle, 10 hours of which must come from NASP- or APA-approved providers. All sessions in the OLC are NASP- and APA-approved, and therefore contribute to the 10-hour requirement as well as towards the 75 hour total.
What CPD category do sessions from the OLC count toward?
All archived and OnDemand sessions are considered "self-study" (Category : http://www.nasponline.org/certification/renew_cpdcategories.aspx). Live webinars and webcasts can be considered Category A.
Can I use these CPD credits to renew other credentials?
Yes, provided that the credentialing body that manages your certification or licensure (e.g., Board of Psychology) accepts NASP- or APA-approved CPD credits towards renewal.
Log-in and Account Creation
Do I need to create an account before searching the catalog? If not, when do I create an account?
You do not need an online account to browse the course catalog. However in order to register, you need to create an account profile for yourself or the person for whom you are registering.
How do I create an account?
An account can be created one of three ways. The catalog home page may provide more specific log-in directions.
What if I complete a session on a computer that is not hooked up to a printer?
You can log in to your account at a later time or date and print out the documentation of attendance.
How long do I have to watch a session after I purchase it?
You will have 90 days from the date of purchase to watch the session and print your documentation of attendance. You will be able to pause the session and start at a later time or date if you are unable to watch the session in one sitting.

What are the minimum system requirements for viewing a program online?
What do I do if I do not meet the minimum system requirements?
You may want to access your course content from a different computer or location if you do not meet any of the previously listed requirements. If there is no other option, check to see if the catalog offers the course that interests you as a podcast or CEtoGO. This is a downloadable audio-only format that is much less demanding and can also be transferred to mobile devices, making it a very viable alternative.
How do I watch (launch) my program?
If the course is a playable format, when in your personal account , you will see a large "Play" button. The Play button is what you use to watch your program. On-Demand products can be accessed at your leisure. If you are connecting to a live program (webcast/webinar, or replay), you will not be able to start the program until the date/time listed in the product details. Downloadable content will have a green "Download" button that you press to either play the content from the site, or download and save to your computer.
When I click on the “Play” button, nothing happens. What should I do?
This may be due to a technical or compatibility issue. If you are connecting to a live program (webcast/webinar) and urgently need assistance, please call our support phone line at 877-880-1335 for immediate assistance. A few quick settings you can adjust that may solve the problem:
May I view the program on a tablet or phone?
Many of the online programs are accessible from mobile devices, however it is highly recommended that you connect to Wi-Fi while accessing them. The cellular/mobile network needs to have sufficient speeds to stream content.
