If I purchase one of our online continuing education course bundles, can I complete one of the courses now, and the rest next renewal period?
Yes. Our social work courses can be completed over multiple license renewal periods.

I have my Social Worker license in multiple states. If I purchase one of your continuing education courses online will the continuing education hours only count for one state or multiple states?

You sent me one of your Social Worker continuing education books in the mail and I already have my continuing education hours. Can I give the book to someone else?
Yes. You can feel free to give our continuing education book to a friend or colleague.

After I complete my continuing education courses, do I send my Social Worker license renewal application to you?
No. You will send in your license renewal application to your state licensing board. The license renewal application should have an address on it telling you where to send it or where to renew online. Many state licensing boards will allow you to renew online.
