Unless otherwise exempted, all persons applying for a license as a psychologist shall, in addition to all other requirements for licensure, have completed coursework or training in human sexuality which meets the requirements of this section. Such training shall:

(b) Be obtained
(1) In an accredited or approved educational institution, as defined in section 2901 of the Code, including extension courses offered by such institutions, or
(2) In an educational institution approved by the Department of Education pursuant to section 94310 of the Education Code, or
(3) From a continuing education provider approved by a professional association, or

(c) Have a minimum length of ten (10) contact hours.
(d) Include the study of physiological-psychological and social-cultural variables associated with sexual identity, sexual behavior or sexual disorders. All applicants shall provide the Board with documentation of completion of the required human sexuality training.
It is the intent of the Board that all persons licensed to practice psychology have minimal training in human sexuality. It is not intended that by complying with the requirements of this section only, a practitioner is fully trained in the subject of sex therapy.
