Continuing Education Approval Program

The National Association of Social Workers and its chapters including NASWKY has been authorized by the Kentucky Board of Social Work (KBSW) to approve continuing education courses which are applicable to the renewal of the license. NASW and NASWKY provide and approve continuing education units in Kentucky.

If you are a person or organization seeking to provide a continuing education course you can apply for approval using our guidelines. We offer several options to match your needs. Call or email to ask about our UNLIMITED STATUS today. The applications for review must be submitted no less than thirty (30) days prior to the date of your conference. If you request NASW-KY to approve a program that is scheduled to occur within (30) days of the CEU approval application submission, the payment submitted must include an additional expedited processing fee of $50.00. NASW-KY will not accept applications for approval within seven (7) days of the conference date. All expedited fees must be received before the conference date by mail or Fed Ex.

If you are providing a state or local program, you can download the guidelines and approval application below.

It is the responsibility of each social worker to pursue their own continuing education – not the CEU provider, the licensing board (KBSW), or the professional association (NASW).
