States and provinces that accept ACE

The ASWB Approved Continuing Education program approves continuing education providers and individual programs. When social workers choose courses created and offered by ACE providers or individual courses approved by ACE, they can trust they will receive high-quality content accepted by most U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions to meet licensure renewal requirements.

The jurisdictions in green accept courses from ACE providers and approved individual courses/conferences.


Even when a social work board accepts courses offering ASWB ACE credit, licensees are responsible for determining whether courses meet the CE requirements in their jurisdictions. States and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether any individual course may be accepted for credit.

  • New Jersey accepts only individual approved courses/conferences.
  • New York does not accept ASWB ACE provider or course/conference approval.
  • West Virginia accepts ACE providers and courses for programs offered outside the state or through distance learning.
