NASW is committed to helping social workers meet their professional development needs. This has led us to create multiple professional development programs and products such as credentials, education and training courses, newsletters, employment information, resources, and publications.


Professional development is an essential activity for ensuring quality social work services. The cornerstone of professional development is continuing your education. Regardless of career stage, social workers are ethically required to keep informed of current research, theories, and techniques that guide social work practice to serve clients and constituents better.


When participating in our professional development programs, NASW members can receive free CEs and CEs at discounted rates to fill their licensing or credentialing requirements. 

NASW offers 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 NASW National Office or one of NASW Chapters. NASW members receive up to 30% discounted prices.

NASW accreditation does not imply automatic acceptance by all State Boards. Individuals should check with their licensing Board on whether a specific program will be accepted for continuing education purposes.
