Social Work Micro Credential Programming
"Micro credentials are a competency-based digital form of certification. They can be issued for formal and informal professional learning experiences that support developing skills and acquiring knowledge to improve professional practice." - nea.org
Over the past few months the Professional Education Team has been working diligently to create a series of social work micro credential programs. These are self-paced programs housed on a digital platform and they range between 15-30 credit hours. The knoweldge you will gain in these programs will allow you to use your required hours of Continuing Education to take a deep dive into specific subject matter and become competent in a new area of practice.
Throughout 2022 we will be releasing 3 brand new micro credential programs in the following areas:
- Introductory and Intermediate Motivational Interviewing
- LCSW Supervisory Institute
- Race & Trauma
Register for our Problem Gambling Micro Credential that we launched in 2020!
All participants who complete micro credential programs will receive their CE hours via traditional certificate, as well as a digital badge that they can display on LinkedIn, social media platforms, resumes, and online portfolios. In addition, all of these programs have an equity and intersectionality component that was introduced as a requirement for all new professional programming. We made sure this is an integral part of the curriculum during the development of these programs and we ask participants to evaluate us on related metrics at the end of the program.
More details and registration info will be coming soon.
