Continuing Education Overview
Share |

We view continuing education (CE) as essential to the social work profession. It ensures that we are learning how to provide quality and cutting-edge social work services to our clients and communities.

All CE programs that we offer are recognized by:

  • The New Jersey State Board of Social Work Examiners
  • The New Jersey Department of Education Professional Development (Provider #705)
  • The State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners (family therapists, professional counselors, rehabilitation counselors and alcohol and drug counselors) for license and certification renewal
  • The New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work

To that end, NASW-NJ's Continuing Education Program's mission is:

  • To provide high quality, affordable continuing education to members and other social workers in New Jersey, and other states where applicable;
  • To plan and implement regional continuing education programs throughout the year;
  • To formulate policies and procedures for NASW-NJ as they relate to Unit and Chapter sponsored continuing education programs; and
  • To monitor re-certification and re-licensure requirements established by the Board of Social Work Examiners as they relate to continuing education.

CE Programs Approved by the CE Approval Collaborative

The link below provides a list of programs/workshops that have been approved by the CE Approval Collaborative (administered by NASW-NJ). All of the courses on the list are accepted continuing education credits for your New Jersey social work license.

Note: There are other sources of continuing education in New Jersey, this is not a list of all accepted courses for the entire state.

For more information regarding the course content, location or presenter, please contact the agency listed. For social workers outside the state of New Jersey, please contact your state's credentialing or licensing board to determine if they accept programs approved by the CE Approval Collaborative.

The list is organized in alphabetical order by sponsor name and indicates the title of the program, the amount and type of credit awarded, as well as the valid approval dates.

This tip sheet is meant to help you figure out whether any course you are considering taking will count for CE credit for your license in New Jersey.
