As of October 1, 1999, the state of Connecticut requires licensed social workers (LMSWs and LCSWs) to obtain 15 Continuing Education Credit Hours (CECs) annually to renew their license (see regulation information). NASW/CT is one of the organizations that is authorized to approve providers of Continuing Education Credit Hours.

NASW/CT’s CEC Program (previously known as CEU) is designed to help you provide documentation of the quality Continuing Education you offer to social workers, and to allow participants to use your programs to fulfill their license renewal requirements, and or requirements imposed by employers and other credentialing bodies.

For approved programs you will have permission to use the phrase “This program has been approved for ___ Continuing Education Credit Hours by NASW/CT and meets the continuing education criteria for Social Work Licensure renewal” in your marketing materials. Approved programs that are open to the public will be listed on the CEC calendar on the NASW/CT website.
