CE Approved Provider Program


The CE Provider Program was developed to meet the needs of agencies, hospitals, individuals, and human service associations wishing to offer quality continuing education to social workers.  The program enables social workers to be confident in the quality of education programs sponsored by other (non-NASWCO) organizations. Providers must meet certain criteria in order to award NASWCO Continuing Education Credits (CECs).  The Education Committee reviews and approves all applications for Provider status.

Application Process

The application process may take up to four weeks to complete so please submit your application well in advance of when you'd like to receive approval. The process is overseen by the Chapter Education Committee and administered by Chapter staff. The fee is determined by two criteria. First, the type of agency (NASW-member owned, small non-profit,or large non-profit/for-profit). Second, the type of educational program (workshop, conference, or for an agency/unlimited titles).  All approval is for one year only.

To apply or renew, please first download the forms below, complete, scan and email to us the signed Application form and its checklist items. Be sure that you understand the fee that we will charge if your application is approved by using the appropriate Fee Worksheet form below. If we approve your application, we will notify you and ask to set up a time to process a credit card over the phone through AffiniPay or ask you to mail a check to our office. You will not receive NASW-CO CE Provider Approved Status until your payment has been received.
