Association for State and Provincial Psychology Board (ASPPB) - Certemy Access

Effective October 15, 2020, ASPPB implemented a new pre-registration system called Certemy. Access to this system is by invitation only from the Board of Psychology. Eligible candidates approved to take the EPPP will receive an email notification directly from Certemy to create a profile and complete their registration.

Candidates that have not received notification are encouraged to check your spam/junk mail or contact the Board’s Examination Coordinator, Lavinia Snyder at Lavinia.snyder@dca.ca.gov to request a new EPPP workflow assignment. A new assignment can only be granted if an applicant’s eligibility has not expired or withdrawn. Candidate eligibility is determined by the Board’s Licensing Unit. Any questions regarding eligibility, please call (916) 574-7720 ext. 3 or emailĀ  boplicensing@dca.ca.gov.

When accessing Certemy it is best to use Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Microsoft Edge. Before logging in, clear browser history and ensure that there are no security measures in place that can block the site. Using home internet is usually the best option. Any issues accessing the new system, please first visit https://certemy.com/asppbcandidates for helpful hints and videos. Certemy can also provide support via email at support@certemy.com.

Once access is completed, candidates are required to complete the registration in its entirety before they can schedule their exam. This includes certifying completion of the Candidate Acknowledgement Statement, read the Candidate Handbook and pay their exam fee. Those that successfully complete their registration will be directed to Pearson Vue to schedule their exam. It is important to note that the option to view exam dates prior to paying is no longer allowed by ASPPB and once the exam fee is paid, refunds are no longer available.

Applicants are given a year to pay and schedule their exam. Once eligibility expires via the Board and/or Certemy, applicants will need to resubmit a new application for licensure to the Board. The licensure application is available on the BOP’s website at https://www.psychology.ca.gov/.

For those that require to retake the EPPP, candidate scores must be reported to the Board first before a new eligibility is created. Candidates no longer have the option to directly request retakes from ASPPB/Pearson Vue. Scores are reported to the Board once week, every Wednesday, by ASPPB. For those that failed the EPPP, new exam eligibility records are automatically generated by the Board and sent to Certemy every Thursday. Be aware that the Board can generate 40 or more eligible candidates per week. Allow ASPPB/Certemy at least 24 hours to process those records. Candidates should have the ability to access their new assignment at the latest by Friday.
