CREDIT ACCEPTANCE DISCLAIMER

PLEASE NOTE: Even when a social work board or other licensing board accepts courses offering ASWB ACE credit or NBCC Credit Hours, licensees are responsible for determining whether courses meet the CE requirements in their jurisdictions. States and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether any individual course may be accepted for credit. We strongly suggest that licensees contact their individual licensing boards to review continuing education requirements for licensure renewal.

We do our best keep our information current, but state laws sometimes change without notice. Please remember, it is your responsibility for interpreting your state’s laws, licensure requirements, course relevancy and all requirements for your state.

If you are aware of a change in your requirements that is not shown here, please send us an email at info@maryalndceu.com or complete our Contact Us form.
