This article intends to review recommendations and guidelines for educating Psychology students in Brazil since their first proposition, covering thematic contents and basic courses, composition of the majors, classifications and entitlements, besides historic aspects and the relationship between educating institutions and other Brazilian Psychology organizations that were relevant in the debate on the education of Brazilian Psychologists.
