Getting continuing education credits

Maintaining your social work license requires more than just filing paperwork every two years. Regulatory boards recognize the importance of lifelong learning to the social work profession.

Social workers in all areas of practice benefit from both continuing education in familiar subjects—including important updates related to current, evidence-based practice—and topic areas that allow them to learn and practice new skills competently.
