The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) is the alliance of state, provincial, and territorial agencies responsible for the licensure and certification of psychologists throughout the United States and Canada. The impetus for its founding was to create and maintain a standardized written Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) and to create mobility for licensees. ASPPB’s mission is to assist its member boards in protecting the public.
Today, in addition to creating the EPPP, ASPPB acts as a voice for those responsible for the regulation of the practice of psychology. ASPPB resources can be best understood within the five aspects of the ASPPB Mission Statement: 1. Credentialing, Examinations and Assessment; 2. Ethics and Discipline; 3. Regulatory, Professional and Legislative Issues; 4. Mutual Recognition of Standards; and 5. Professional Relations.
ASPPB generates a number of publications to aid psychology students in preparing for licensure and maintains an on-line presence at www.asppb.org. The site lists contact information for all 62 member boards, including links to their web sites.
Of direct relevance to students and faculty are ASPPB’s documents created to facilitate successful completion of the EPPP, and/or to provide more information about the EPPP. Visit www.asppb.org to locate and review frequently asked questions for candidates, retired EPPP exam questions (including an answer key), practice exams, and much more.
