§ 1388. Examinations.
(a) The Board recognizes the expertise of the Department of Consumer Affairs' (DCA) Office of Professional Examination Services (OPES). The Board shall utilize the services of the OPES in licensing examination development and validation through an interagency agreement.
(b) An applicant shall successfully take and pass the licensing examinations prior to being licensed. The licensing examination shall consist of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards' (ASPPB) Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), and the California Psychology Laws and Ethics Examination (CPLEE), except that the EPPP shall be waived for those applicants who meet the criteria in section 1388.6 of this chapter. Such applicants shall be required to take and pass the CPLEE.
(c) An applicant is eligible to take the EPPP upon completion of a qualifying doctorate degree and 1500 hours of qualifying professional experience. An applicant shall pass the EPPP and complete all 3000 hours of supervised professional experience prior to being eligible for the CPLEE, whichever is applicable, pursuant to section 1388.6.
(d) Upon application, the Board will notify applicants of their eligibility to take the EPPP. Applicants are responsible for completing any administrative requirements for taking the EPPP established by ASPPB or its agent, including paying any fees. This subsection applies to those re-taking the EPPP as well as to those taking it for the first time.
(e) For forms of the EPPP taken prior to September 1, 2001, the passing score is the score that was recognized by the Board at that time. For computer administered forms of the EPPP, the Board shall apply a scaled score as recommended by ASPPB.
(f) Qualified applicants desiring to take the CPLEE shall submit to the Board the fee set forth in section 1392 of this chapter. Applicants shall comply with all instructions established by the DCA examination vendor for taking the CPLEE.
(g) The passing score on the CPLEE shall be determined for each form of the examination by a criterion referenced procedure performed by OPES.
(h) An applicant for whom English is their second language may be eligible for additional time when taking the EPPP and/or the CPLEE. The applicant must complete and submit a request for additional time that states under penalty of perjury that English is their second language. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT) certification score of 85 or below must be sent by Educational Testing Service directly to the Board. The TOEFL must have been taken within the previous two years prior to application. If approved, the applicant will be allotted time-and-a-half (1.5x) when taking the examination.
