Continuing Education

ACT 31 ON-LINE TRAINING:Please refer any questions regarding the on-line training to the PA Child Welfare Resource Center.  Technical assistance may be requested by e-mailing or calling 717-795-9048. NOTE TO PHARMACISTS taking our PA-Approved Act 31 Child Abuse Recognition and Report online training course: Because the child abuse continuing education is Board-approved, not ACPE-approved, information on the completion of the child abuse program is not imported into the CPE Monitor.  Rather, the Board of Pharmacy will electronically receive notice of the completion of the child abuse continuing education directly from the Board-approved child abuse program provider.  The information will be recorded in your pharmacist license record rather than the CPE Monitor.

The Social Work Code of Ethics requires continuing education as part of lifelong professional development for social workers. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Council on Social Work Education—which accredits the School of Social Work—both prioritize continuing education. Most states that license social workers require continuing education for license renewal. Currently, the Pennsylvania Board of Social Work, Professional Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners requires 30 hours of social work continuing education for the biennial LSW or LCSW renewal—the current two-year licensing period began March 1, 2015 and will end February 28, 2017.  The University of Pittsburgh and its School of Social Work have also made continuing education a strategic priority.  To learn more about social work licensing and biennial continuing education requirements, visit the Pennsylvania Board of Examiners website. This site and the CE program office will help guide you in your social work professional development.
