Continuing Education

Social Workers must complete thirty (30) hours of social work continuing education during the two-year license period to be eligible for license renewal. 

Social Work Continuing Education (SWCE) has been defined as those formalized activities that are directed at developing and enhancing an individual's social work knowledge base and service delivery skills in the applicable area of planning and administration, education, research, or direct service with individual, couples, families, and groups. These activities may include short academic courses, audit courses in colleges and universities, independent study courses, internet courses, workshops, seminars, conferences, and lectures oriented toward the enhancement of social work practice, values, skills, and knowledge. 

The Board does not have the capacity to pre-approve all continuing workshops. It is the licensee's responsibility, using his/her professional judgment, to determine the workshops that are applicable and appropriate to his/her professional development as a social worker. The continuing education guideline may be found here.
