Temporary Licensure Search (PDF)
The Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners (Board) conducts primary source verification of a standard applicant’s education, training and passage of the national exam before issuing a license to practice psychology or behavior analysis in Arizona.
For psychology applications by waiver, verification of training is obtained based on number of years in independent practice:
For 10 years or more independent practice, the applicant may waive verification of additional 1,500 hours supervised experience.
For 20 years or more independent practice, the applicant may waive verification of all supervised experience/training.
If an individual applies for a psychology license by credential, the credential (CPQ, ABPP or NRHSPP) is primary source verified. Education and training are not verified by the Board for licensure by credential applications.
If an individual applies for a psychology or behavior analyst license by universal recognition, education and training are not verified by the Board.
A National Practitioner Data Bank self-query is required for all psychology applicants.
For all pathways to licensure, verification of licensure/certification and disciplinary history from every jurisdiction in the U.S. and Canada in which a psychologist or behavior analyst holds or has held a license/certification is obtained directly from the licensing boards for each applicant, as applicable.
