NASW-IL is also a Illinois State Board of Education-approved licensed professional development provider for PELs (formerly Type 73s) for school social workers.


The NASW-Illinois Chapter fulfills its mission of advancing the professional knowledge base of social workers by delivering state-of-the-art continuing education at the chapter office training center, virtually, and in districts across the state. The educational workshops provide an excellent opportunity for social workers to exchange ideas and information with colleagues and build professional relationships.


Utilizing the latest in instructional “blended learning” concepts, the NASW Illinois Chapter combines the strengths of e-training technologies with traditional classroom opportunities. The result—a powerful and comprehensive educational package proven to increase learning comprehension and retention for social workers.

Event Cancellation Policy

While we understand that emergencies do occur, once a participant has been registered and is expected to attend a course, the NASW-Illinois Chapter has already factored that person’s attendance into costs already absorbed by the chapter. Therefore our cancellation policy for our continuing education offerings is as follows (unless stated otherwise on the registration form or page):

  • Cancellations received more than three (3) weeks out from a course can request a refund in full at 100% cost.

  • Cancellations received within three (3) weeks of the course are eligible for a partial refund. The participant may request a refund MINUS 20% of the course fee (used to help the chapter recoup event set-up costs) EXCEPT in the case of the LSW/LCSW Review Course (see next bullet).

  • Cancellations received within three (3) weeks of an LCW/LCSW Review Course date are eligible to reschedule ONE TIME for $20.00 for one of the next three available review course dates. There are no refunds for LSW/LCSW Review Course cancellations received within three weeks of the review course date. Rescheduling requests must be submitted BEFORE the day of the event. Requests received AFTER the event has begun will NOT be accepted.

  • Any no show for a course without prior cancellation notification will not be eligible for a refund nor the option to attend a future course at the absorbed cost.
