The Emergency Responder and Public Safety Clinician Certification (ERPSCC) is packed with educational content and certifies basic knowledge for all clinicians, master’s level and above. Course content is informed by the foundational and functional competencies outlined by the American Board of Police and Public Safety Psychology (ABPPSP). The ERPSCC provides foundational specialty knowledge and ongoing continuing education for all clinicians and providers. Obtaining board certification through the ABPPSP, for those licensed psychologists with experience in the field, is encouraged and considered the highest level of certification in the specialty. If you are interested in obtaining ABPPSP Board Specialization, please find more information here. The board welcomes your questions and has a mentorship program to assist in your endeavors toward specialty certification. Read more here.
Clinicians who are already American Board Certified in Police and Public Safety Psychology (ABPPSP) and/or who have earned Diplomate status with the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology (SPCP) only need to demonstrate proof of their status with these organizations to be acknowledged as an Emergency Responder and Public Safety Certified Clinician™ and listed on our national registry. There is an administrative fee of $75.00 and requirements must be met for maintenance of certification.
