Here I am, with a doctorate in psychology from a good school- and yet I can't for the life of me figure out the licensure process in California. I've recently finished internship and have my degree. I've started a post-doc. In CA, you must have 1500 hours to take the EPPPP but 3000 to be licensed. I have the 1500- do I send in the actual licensure application now to get approved for the EPPP or is there another process? Would they hold onto my paperwork for a year until I have my 3000 hours in? Seems risky. Before you suggest I ask the Board, I've attempted to this week and they refer me to their website- which has zero reference (as far as I can tell) to this aspect of the process. Anyone have insight?
