CE Endorsement Information

Make Your CE Offerings Stand Out from the Crowd

Endorsement by NASW-NC is a way to increase your marketability as a quality continuing education provider. Such endorsement will be valuable in attracting social workers desiring state credentialing renewal and professional development.

Obtaining approval from NASW-NC is not necessary in order for an education provider to offer CE contact hours to social workers in North Carolina. However, because NASW-NC champions the professional development of social workers, the chapter has developed a Continuing Education Endorsement Program with the mission to identify sound, relevant, and appropriate CE opportunities for social workers in North Carolina.



The Endorsement program does not include marketing services from NASW-NC.  The endorsed workshop will be listed on the NASW-NC conference calendar and on the endorsement page of the NASW-NC website. If your organization would like NASW-NC to assist you in marketing your program, please click here.

Should your program be denied endorsement by the Peer Review Board, a $35 processing fee will be taken from your application fee and a check in the amount of the remainder of your application fee will be mailed to the address on the application. Should your workshop(s) be denied endorsement, the Board may decide to offer suggestions for a more robust application and the applicant may re-apply.   Implementation of these suggestions does not guarantee future endorsement.


Please allow up to four weeks for pre-approval processing. If your event is occurring in less than 4 weeks, your event must be submitted with the RUSH option


A RUSH option allows you to rush your application through in 10 business days for an additional $50.

If you are submitting this application more than 4 weeks prior to the event, then your application is not eligible for the RUSH option.  If you are submitting this application within 4 weeks of your event, but more than 10 business days prior to the event, then you must choose this RUSH option in order to have your CE application considered for endorsement.


The Peer Review Board is not able to review applications of events in less than 10 business days from the date submitted.


The NC Social Work Certification and Licensure Board always has the final say as to whether continuing education courses qualify for licensure renewal. The NASW-NC CE Endorsement Program simply identifies providers capable of delivering high-quality, appropriate continuing education for Social Workers.  Our endorsement is not a guarantee that your program will be accepted by the Licensure Board in the case of an audit of an individual Social Worker.






We look forward to helping you provide a continuing education program that best meets the needs of discerning social workers. If you have any questions, please call NASW-NC at 919-828-9650.
