2. Presenters seeking APA CE endorsement must have a doctoral level degree (it does not have to be a Ph.D. in Psychology) or equivalent and be presenting in their area of training that is relevant to psychology. If presenting with a psychology trainee (i.e. doctoral candidate), or a non-doctoral level provider, 50% or more of the workshop must be presented by the doctoral level professional, and all presenters must demonstrate their expertise in the topic area regardless of degree. For help in preparing a vita demonstrating your expertise, see: Curriculum Vitae Guidance for Establishing Expertise
