COVID Processes

Note: During this time, you can still call with inquiries, leave a voicemail, and we will promptly get back to you. All mail applications were placed on hold until the national office reopened. You can email CEU@socialworkers.org for all inquiries, new applications, renewals, and evaluation summaries. We appreciate your patience and flexibility during this time.

Providers that filed for approval of a live event and are considering switching to a virtual event due to COVID-19 concerns can contact the CE approval program at CEU@socialworkers.org to discuss options.

Organizations that offer formal continuing education (CE) programs relevant to social workers may submit an application to become an NASW-Approved provider. The NASW CE Approval Program includes national, regional and multi-state CE providers.
