About NASW-Illinois Chapter Events
NEW! Note on Remote Programs: In-Person CEU Requirement: With removal of the in-person CEU requirement in July 2023, the state now requires that any remote program (e.g., self-study, book-study, or computer/online based course) must include an examination. See the FAQ on our CEU Requirements page for more information.
All views and opinions expressed are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views or positions of the NASW-Illinois Chapter.
Want to see more events? We are seeking local venues and presenters to provide programming both in-person and live virtually! If you have suggestions for either, please reach out to the chapter to make an introduction.
In addition to chapter events, our district chairs are also responsible for organizing 4 events a year for their district. Please note that district events are often the efforts of one volunteer to plan, organize, and run. If you would like to volunteer your time to see more events in your area or make speaker or venue suggestions, please reach out to your district chair.

All courses offered through the NASW-Illinois Chapter meet the continuing education qualifications for LSWs, LCSWs, LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, APNs, LCPs, and LMFTs licensed in Illinois as required by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). NASW-IL is also an Illinois State Board of Education–approved licensed professional development provider for PELs (formerly Type 73s) for school social workers.
Abot the Social Work Online CE Institute
The Social Work Online CE Institute is a third party entity offering hundreds of recorded continuing education trainings from both the NASW-Illinois Chapter as well as other NASW Chapters around the United States.
Are Social Work Online CE Institute courses accepted by IDFPR in Illinois?
All Social Work Online CE Institute courses are accepted for continuing education by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR).
What about other state licensing boards?
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.
I'm having difficulty accessing a training/CEU I purchased from the Social Work Online CE Institute.
The Social Work Online CE Institute is managed separately from the NASW/NASW-Illinois Chapter, and you will need to go to them directly for any issues with a training purchased from them. Visit their website and go to the menu at the bottom of the page for technical assistance by phone, email, or immediate support. There are FAQs available as well in each course under the Help tab.
NEW! New to this licensure cycle with the removal of the in-person CE requirement, IDFPR now requires that any CEUs obtained via a remote program (e.g., self-study, book-study, or computer/internet based course) must include an examination.
If you take a course from the Social Work Online CE Institute and want to apply those CEUs for Illinois licensure, click here to get the course validated for Illinois licensure.
