Applications for Temporary Psychologist License are available for individuals completing supervised postdoctoral experience. Arizona now offers a 36-month non-renewable temporary license for qualified individuals. Pursuant to A.R.S. §32-2073(B), applicants must meet the requirements of A.R.S. §32-2071, subsections A, B, C, D and work under supervision for postdoctoral experience. The applicant’s supervised postdoctoral experience must meet the requirements of A.R.S. §32-2071(G). A written training plan that complies with A.R.S. §32-2071(G)(7) is required as part of the application for temporary licensure. Substantive policy statement 01-14 provides additional information regarding the written training plan (Substantive Policy Statement SP 01-14)
Arizona does not offer temporary licensure for independent practice. Please see the exemption from licensure statutes at A.R.S. §32-2075. If you wish to practice as an independent psychologist for 20 days or less (160 hours) per year, you may may qualify to do so under the exemption statute.
