Wyoming Board of Psychology accepts NCSP as route for credential to practice outside of schools as a Specialist in School Psychology
A Wyoming Educator License with a Professional Services Endorsement for School Psychologist is valid for 5 years, and requires completion of a master's degree in school psychology.
Wyoming generally recognizes all out-of-state teaching licenses if the standards the applicant met in his or her state are equivalent to Wyoming licensing standards.
Continuing Education Requirements:
Requires 70 CPD hours every 5 years (or 5 credits). NASP-approved CPD hours are accepted towards renewal.
Scope of Practice:
School psychologists with the SEA credential are allowed to provide services in public schools (K-12), pre-K and early childhood settings, private and charter schools, and college and university settings. The SEA credential allows for school psychologists to provide contracted work in school settings. The SEA credential does not allow practice outside of schools. One must apply through the Wyoming Board of Psychology in order to practice privately. However, the Wyoming Board of Psychology offers a designation of Specialist in School Psychology that can be met by an individual who has the NCSP and maintains the SEA credential. This designation requires supervision from a psychologist.
