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

Arizona social workers can earn all 30 hours with on-line courses.

Continuing education activities should relate to your scope of practice and improve skill and competency.

Beginning 1/1/18, all licensees must complete a Board -approved tutorial on Board statutes and rules:

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 CEUs 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.

Arizona Social Work CEUs?  Trainings?  Contact Hours?  Credit Hours?

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.

All of our courses are $5.99 per credit hour. We also offer an unlimited package with one year of unlimited courses for $74.99 or two years for $124.99. To get started, you can browse our complete course catalog or use the category links on the right.
