EPPP Practice Exams:

Effective, April 23, 2021, candidates can now go directly to the Pearson VUE portal to purchase and schedule their practice exams at https://home.pearsonvue.com/asppb/practice.


EPPP Part 2 Information

Our mission includes ensuring safe and competent patient care. As you may be aware, the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) has for many years administered the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), an examination designed to measure the foundational knowledge needed for entry-level licensure in psychology. It is used in all jurisdictions in North America. At the request of member jurisdictions, ASPPB has more recently developed the EPPP (Part 2-Skills) to provide a valid, reliable and legally-defensible measure of a universal set of skills needed for entry level licensure. A component of the EPPP, this is a computer based examination which assesses those skills, and it will become available in January 2020. Going forward, the knowledge exam will be known as the EPPP (Part 1 – Knowledge). More detail on the composition of and rationale for the new exam is available on ASPPB's website. The Board will be considering examination requirements in upcoming meetings.

At the October 29, 2019 meeting, the Board decided to take no action until after the Board conducts a stakeholder meeting in 2020.


Notification of Changes to Issuance of Licenses, Certifications and Registrations

The Board of Psychology will cease mailing hard-copy licenses, certifications, and registrations. During the next renewal, a final hard copy will be issued that contains no expiration date. The renewal period for Board of Psychology will begin in early May and the board will send out email notices at that time. This final copy should be maintained, carried, or posted in accordance with relevant applicable laws and regulations. State health regulatory boards, employers, insurance providers and citizens seeking verification of current licensure status in the Commonwealth of Virginia may obtain this information via License Lookup.

Replacement or duplicate of a final hard-copy license, certification, or registration may be requested through an individual online account.
