has been certified
by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) as an ACE (Approved Continuing
Education) provider. This approval status extends to all of NACSW's
current training programs including its conventions, regional conferences,
chapter workshops, and audio conferences.
is important to note, however, that final
authority for approving any continuing education activity rests with the state
or province in which the participant is licensed. Some states, for example,
categorically do not yet accept distant education contact hours, no matter who offers
them, and so training participants are still responsible to check with their
local authorities about final training acceptability. However, an increasing number of regulatory
boards readily accept the continuing education offerings of ASWB-approved
providers, and NACSW expects this number to continue to grow.
