The Continuing Education Program offers specialized training by local experts in the topical areas that social workers want and need to learn in order to best serve their clients and organizations.
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. The University of Pittsburgh and its School of Social Work has 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.
We are not offering live trainings during the summer but we are currently developing a schedule of live, online trainings for September - December of 2020. Check back soon!
