CE Approved Providers

About Continuing Education Approved Provider Program

The Chapter's Continuing Education (CE) Approved Provider program is overseen by the Education Committee. These CE titles are not provided by NASWCO directly but are approved to award NASW-CO Endorsed Continuing Education Credits to their participants. Such CE may be utilized for DORA's Continuing Professional Development requirements for licensure renewal. Select the provider name to link to their website for more info.

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-NASW-CO) organizations. Providers must meet certain criteria in order to award NASW-CO Endorsed Continuing Education Credits (CECs).  The Education Committee reviews and approves (or denies) all applications for CE Approved Provider status. 

To apply to be an Approved Provider, see the CE Provider application page.
