The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA) is approved by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) to offer Continuing Education (CE) for psychologists. Full attendance at the workshop is required to receive Continuing Education Credits.  Partial credit will not be awarded, and late arrivals or early departure will preclude awarding of Continuing Education Credits.  PAA maintains responsibility for the program. Cancellation and refunds may be applied for by writing to the PAA office.  Cancellations received fourteen (14) days prior to the Continuing Education activity will receive a full refund of the registration fee, less a $25.00 + GST processing fee.  PAA reserves the right to cancel any activity, in which case a full refund of the registration fee will be provided.

The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA) has a reciprocity agreement with the British Columbia Psychological Association (BCPA), the Psychological Society of Saskatchewan (PSS), and Idaho Psychological Association offering registration to the three associations’ respective continuing education programs at the same fees that each of these associations charges to their own members.  Members of the PAA who register for workshops and conferences offered either by the B.C. Psychological Association, the Psychological Society of Saskatchewan, and Idaho Psychological Association are now able to register to these functions at the respective association’s member rates.
