The Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners ("Board") notified psychologists and behavior analysts on August 3, 2021 that the agency's transition from the eLicensing platform to a new system would necessitate a blackout period during which licensure renewal functions would not be available. This update is being issued to licensees with an October 31, 2021 renewal deadline.
Given that the data extractions from the eLicensing platform required a substantial amount of time to organize, validate, and map into the new system, the blackout period had to be extended into late September. The Board anticipated this possibility and planned accordingly to ensure that no licensee experiences a lapse in licensure or incurs a late fee:
Once the new system goes live, Board staff will immediately notify licensees by email of its availability. The same information will be posted here.
- Board staff will prioritize phone calls and emails from licensees requiring assistance.
Please have all of your completed continuing education for the current license period assembled and ready to enter into the new system; this will help ensure the most efficient renewal process.
This shift to the new system remedies the many deficiencies and challenges licensees experienced with eLicensing. While necessary, the Board recognized a small subset of licensees would be impacted regardless of the timing. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
If you do not intend to renew your Arizona license that expires October 31, 2021, please disregard this message.
