Renewal Instructions

Licensees are required to obtain 10 in person hours of continuing education. In person currently means that the presenter and the participants are at the same location.

Important Information Regarding Renewal

The board intends to promulgate a rule that allows synchronous, interactive workshops to count as in-person continuing education, but until that rule is final this type of learning is considered distance learning. The current rules limit social workers to 10 hours of continuing education via distance learning per collection period. The current rules allow the board to consider certain circumstances as stated below. A request and supporting documentation can be emailed to socialwork@labswe.org or mailed to the board office.

Rule 317.F.

  1. The board may grant a social worker approval to complete more than 10 hours of continuing education via distance learning in the case of debilitating, disabling, or other medical conditions making travel impossible or extremely inconvenient. The licensee shall provide satisfactory documentation for the grant of approval.
  2. The board may grant a social worker approval to complete more than 10 hours of continuing education via distance learning if the social worker reside out of United States territories where no in-person continuing education is available. The licensee shall provide satisfactory documentation for the grant of approval.

Renewal is required by August 31 of each year. Licensed that are not renewed by August 31 will lapse. Individuals with a lapsed license are not authorized to practice social work. Lapsed licensed can be renewed between September 1 – February 28 with an additional fee. After February 28, one must apply for reinstatement. Reinstatement application are considered by the board at their regularly schedule board meetings.

What is the collection period for continuing education?

This allowance is only for the time periods stated.

How do I enter continuing education?

If you complete an educational offering that offers hours in more than one content area, i.e. clinical and ethics, the offering must be listed as two separate entries. One entry for the number of clinical hours received and one entry for the number of ethics hours received.

If the educational offering is less than one hour you must include a 0 and decimal. For example, a 30 minute training is entered as 0.5.

Where is the continuing education I uploaded?

In your Digital Wallet under the “Education” tab.

What if I don’t want to renew my BACS?

Contact the board office to request that a LCSW renewal workflow be assigned to your account. Do not complete the LCSW-BACS renewal workflow.

I recently passed the Masters exam, do I renew my CSW or LMSW?

You do not need to renew your CSW. Whether you have to renew your LMSW during your first year of having the LMSW depends on the month it was awarded.

Licenses issued July, August, September owe 20 hours of continuing education and renew by August 31 of the following year.

Can I submit more than the required continuing education hours?

Yes, you are able to enter as many hours as you want.

Can I get an extension for obtaining continuing education?

In the case of extenuating circumstances, when a licensee does not fulfill the continuing education requirements, they must submit a written request to the board for an extension. Include in the request how many hours have been completed and how long of an extension is being requested. If approved, you must complete all steps of the renewal workflow, minus the continuing education step.
