School of Social Work Continuing Education Program

The School of Social Work offers lifelong learning through our Continuing Education Program. Our courses are taught by Temple’s renowned social work faculty members and other recognized practitioners and leaders in the field, with an emphasis on continuing our commitment to social transformation at the individual, family, organizational and community levels.

Temple University School of Social Work Continuing Education Program, #1557, 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. Temple University School of Social Work Continuing Education Program maintains responsibility for this course. ACE provider approval period: 02/27/2019 – 02/27/2020.   

Temple University School of Social Work has been designated as a pre-approved provider of professional continuing education for social workers by the Pennsylvania State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Professional Counselors.

In accordance with our ACE Certification, Temple's School of Social Work CEU courses are accepted by jurisdictions that accept ACE as noted on their website: https://www.aswb.org/ace/ace-jurisdiction-map. The State of New Jersey accepts Temple's School of Social Work CEU courses as we fall under their regulation as a regionally accredited institution.

All continuing education courses are currently offered in person only. Courses are typically offered at Temple University Center City Campus or Temple University Ambler Campus.  Electronic certificates denoting continuing education clock hours are provided to students who actively participate in the entire course (from start to finish) and who complete a course evaluation form at the conclusion of the course.
