SEXOLOGIST DIRECTORY

Welcome back:

We here at The American Board of Sexology have been working diligently to update and revise the Membership Directory, revise the programs, modernize our website, incorporate online payments,  and re-connect with lost members (our fault for not modernizing things sooner.)

You are probably here because your certification has expired or is about to expire. We want to let you know, that we are here to help get everything back in order. Do not worry how long you have been expired, as we are not going back in time to collect fees for our previous lack of proper record keeping.  We are informing everyone, that going forward, we are going to be proactive.

The Board has added some new faces with the inclusion of some from the past. The Board agreed with the Director if the program to hire two outside firms to assist in the processing of members.

We first hired a third party research company to do investigative background checks and education verification. This allows for faster validation of new members and properly monitor current members of any discrepancies.  They strive to have a turnaround time of one week, but have been providing us so far with a two day result.

The second company we hired is a website design and marketing company to bring us into the 21st century. They have redesigned the website, and continue to make improvements, to provide a better search process to the Member Directory and online certification processing which includes a secure merchant gateway (PayPal) for online payments.  They were able to also create a secure digital printable certificate for our members. This allows for a “mail-free” and “Covid-free” solution going forward with a verification process back to the website. 

So, to update your certification is simple and easy now. You will just need to choose which certification you will want to continue with or if you want to change it depending upon your current business practice status. Scroll further down this page to see what certification is right for you.
