Michigan State University School of Social Work seeks to be as accessible as possible. You can now receive social work continuing education credit at your leisure—when it's convenient for you! Save travel time and cost.
On December 22, 2016, R 338.2963 was promulgated stating one half of the required continuing education contact hours must be completed in person using live, synchronous contact. The remaining continuing education contact hours may be completed in any other approved format. Since the rules were promulgated mid-license cycle, enforcement of the new continuing education requirements will begin with those renewing in 2020. Prior to 2020, only one hour in pain is required and a maximum of ten (10) hours can be earned in online programs.
If you live outside of Michigan, check with your state's social work regulatory body. For more information, please see the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director's Office Social Work General Rules. (R 338. 2963)
