(PRWEB) August 19, 2014
The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), the nonprofit organization of social work regulatory bodies in the U.S. and Canada, has been selected by the New Jersey State Board of Social Work Examiners as a Continuing Education Approval Entity effective with the licensing cycle that begins September 1, 2014. By state regulation, all social work continuing education courses must be approved before being offered in New Jersey. Licensed social workers must complete approved CE as part of renewing their license with the state.
“ASWB’s NJ CE Course Approval Program will provide timely, cost-effective, and quality approvals to meet the needs of social work CE providers who want to offer courses in New Jersey,” said David Ryczko, ASWB supervisor of Registry and supplemental contracts. “The new service will complement ASWB’s ACE program, which has long provided high-quality evaluation of social work CE providers across North America.”
ASWB is now accepting applications for individual course approval. As part of the ASWB New Jersey Continuing Education Course Approval Program, ASWB will also make a list of approved courses available to social workers on the ASWB website.
