Upcoming Live Virtual Events:
NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person events have been canceled or postponed. The chapter is focusing on providing live virtual events until it is safe for attendees to start meeting again in person. We recognize that virtual learning is not for everyone, and we are committed to returning to presenting quality in-person CEU courses when it is possible to do so safely.
According to IDFPR, live virtual courses do not count as in-person CEUs at this time. We have been in discussions with IDFPR around waiving the in-person requirement; however, the department does not want to grant that variance as social workers have more than a year before the 2021 renewal deadline. While we will continue to advocate for our members, we encourage you to work toward the 15 online CEU credits currently permitted so that next year, you will not be too far behind and unable to renew successfully. Check back with our 'News' page for updates as they are announced.
Recorded CE Trainings
NASW-Illinois Chapter has teamed up with chapters from around the US to offer hundreds of CE courses in a variety of formats—webinars, webcasts, podcasts, presentations, and more. All courses offered through this program are accredited by either the national NASW office or a state chapter. Either way, you get discounts as an NASW member!
For attendees outside of Illinois, please note that NASW accreditation does not imply automatic acceptance by all state boards. Individuals should check with their state licensing board on whether a specific program will be accepted for continuing education purposes. All courses in the Social Work Online CE Institute are accepted by IDFPR and will count toward your Illinois LSW and LCSW renewal requirements.
