CEU Social Work Requirements Social Workers

ceusforsocialworkers Not every state requires ceu credits (or continuing education, ce credits) to renew the license for social workers. For instance, Colorado, New York and Hawaii do not have this requirement for licensed social workers. The other states, that do have this requirement for those with msw degrees vary in both the number of credits as well as the number of ceu credits allowed by home study hours.

If you are a social worker looking to get CEU credits, I have an online, home study course on using Breathing, Meditation and Simple Yoga for Depression, Anxiety and stress available here . If you are in Florida, or visiting, I also am doing a live workshop in Boca Raton on February 15th which you can read about here
.

It is also important to keep current about new topics offered and of course the required courses such as ethics, domestic violence and medical errors. There are interesting courses where you can learn more about topics such as Criminal Justice Social Worker responsibilities as well as Medical Social Worker tasks.
