Does the Idaho Board accept courses from ASWB-approved providers?

The Idaho Board does not pre-approve courses for credit.

How many hours can I earn with on-line courses?

You can earn 20 out of 20 hours with on-line courses as long as the subject is germane to social work and taught by someone with the same education level or higher and a test is given. Our courses are all taught by a licensed specialist clinical social worker.  Continuing education for clinical licensees must be clinical in nature except that five hours each year may be nonclinical.

Please remember that we have done our best to research your state’s licensing guidelines. Licensing regulations can change frequently including guidelines about how many hours you can earn on-line. Most jurisdictions require a certain number of hours in ethics and other areas of practice. The final authority for approving any continuing education activity rests with your state board. Even those states that endorse the ACE program may have exceptions in terms of the courses that they will accept. It is ultimately your responsibility to understand the licensing regulations in your state.

CEU?  Contact Hour?  Credit Hour?

Different jurisdictions have different definitions.  For some jurisdictions, the term CEU consists of ten credit hours.  At Free State Social Work, we offer continuing education credit hours and we estimate that each credit hour will require one hour of reading.
