AOSW maintains responsibility for the program. ASWB Approval Period: 11/11/16 - 11/11/19.  Social workers should contact their regulatory board to determine course approval for continuing education credits.

Social workers must successfully complete a quiz with a 75 percent passing grade and answer evaluation questions to earn credit for both live and recorded events.

How and when do I get the CE Certificate for webinars?

After the webinar has finished, you will receive an email with a link including login instructions to access the quiz and evaluation (the evaluation is included with the quiz). Social workers have one month to claim their CE credit. The quiz is automatically graded by the system, so if you don’t pass it the first time, you will be given a second attempt. After completing the quiz and scoring 75% or higher and completing an evaluation, you will be able to immediately print your CE certificate for the live webinar.


What if I can't attend live webinars?

You can purchase a recorded version of each webinar, which will be available on the AOSW website typically one week after the completion of the live webinar. After your webinar purchase has been processed (usually 2-3 business days), you will receive an email with a link that includes the login instructions to access the webinar recording, handout materials, quiz and evaluation.  After viewing the webinar recording, you can take the quiz and complete an evaluation.  The quiz is automatically graded by the system, so if you don’t pass it the first time, you will be given a second attempt.  After completing the quiz and scoring 75% or higher and completing an evaluation, you will be able to immediately print your CE certificate for the webinar recording.

How can additional participants claim CE credit if they viewed the webinar with me?

Colleagues that viewed the webinar with you are also eligible to receive CE credits for $25 per person. They must purchase the credits within 7 days of the live webinar, and will need the order number that appeared in your webinar purchase confirmation email in order to purchase the additional CE credits.  The order number can be found in the primary registrant’s confirmation e-mail.  After their additional participant CE purchase has been processed (usually 2-3 business days), they will receive an email with a link that includes the login instructions to access the quiz and evaluation (the evaluation is included with the quiz).  Social workers have one month to claim their CE credit and must successfully complete the quiz and evaluation with a 75% passing grade to earn credit for the live webinar.

To do this, click "View Your Results." There, they will see a list of their completed quiz and evaluation results. Click the "Print" link under Certificate.
 

Can additional participants claim CE credit if they viewed a recording of the webinar with me, rather than the live event?

No, the webinar recording and associated CE credits are intended only for the primary registrant.
 

Can I give my webinar login information to another person?

No, your registration entitles you to one phone line and one web connection only. Others can attend with you on the same phone line and computer; we encourage you to gather with your colleagues in a conference room, call in from a speaker phone and watch the webinar on a large screen. If others want to call in from a separate location, they must purchase a webinar registration for themselves.
 

Where can I find my registration code?

When you registered, you received a confirmation e-mail. The number is located immediately below your name at the top of that e-mail.
 

What if I experience technical difficulties while logging into a webinar that's about to start?

During a webinar, I'm experiencing problems with my speaker phone, or I can't hear the presenter very well. What can I do?

Make sure the volume setting on your speakerphone is turned up to its highest possible level. AOSW will do everything it can to eliminate technical difficulties within our control. Refunds will not be issued for technical issues.
 

Can I cancel my webinar registration?
