Does the Tennessee Board accept courses from ASWB-approved continuing education providers?

Yes.  The Tennessee Board does not pre-approve continuing education programs. It is the licensee’s responsibility, using his or her judgment and utilizing the guidelines provided within the rules, to determine whether or not the programs are applicable and appropriate to his or her professional development and meet the standards specified in these rules. Rule 1365-01-.09(9)

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.

Does Free State Social Work offer Tennessee 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.
