Arizona Social Workers CE Requirements, Accreditations & Approvals

Arizona Social Workers

As a Jointly Accredited Organization, NetCE is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. NetCE maintains responsibility for this course.

The Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners accepts courses from any provider who is ASWB approved.
