Social Work
: The Healthcare Training Institute (HTI), provider #1073, is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved as ACE providers. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. Healthcare Training Institute (HTI) maintains responsibility for this course. ACE provider approval period: 8/13/2017 - 8/13/2020.

Terminology Clarification: We list our course credits using the term CE Hours, CE Hrs, CEs, or CE; because 1 (one) CE hour equals 1 hour of CE credit. When referring to course hours we do not use the term CEU because 1 (one) CEU equals 1/10th of a CE credit. Therefore we only use CE Hours, CE Hrs, CEs, or CE when referring to the number of continuing education hours granted for a course.

The information below is intended to be a general guide, and not an official source. As you know Boards change requirements without notice. Please contact your Board if you find more current information, than that found below. To assist in our update process should you find a discrepancy, please email us with the change at [email protected]. Thank you,
