The School of Social Work is pleased to offer a selection of timely continuing education opportunities for social workers and other human service workers. The Professional Development Series is a licensed State of Illinois provider of continuing education units. CEU's and Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDUs) must be requested at the time of registration, in order for the proper forms to be completed and are required by Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). Continuing education units (CEUs) are counted as one unit per hour of instruction. The total number of CPDUs will be indicated on the ISBE 77-21B forms issued.
Update for Fall 2020:
As the Coronavirus pandemic unfolds globally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers-at a social distance-and to keep learning and developing as social work leaders and professionals. For the fall of 2020, we will be offering exclusively online programming that is relevant to these unprecedented times and the practice of social work. Don't let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development.
Update as of October 13, 2020: NASW-IL was successful in advocating for waiver of the in-person CEU requirements by IDFPR due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You may now utilize any mixture of in-person, live virtual, or virtual trainings to reach your 30-hour CEU requirement.
For any questions about programming and registration please contact Caroline Gosselin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
