The Forensic Social Work Certificate is a continuing education program sanctioned by the National Organization of Forensic Social Work. This certificate program is open to anyone working in a forensic social work related field or is a graduate of or current student in a social work program.  Participants will receive training in topics  foundational to sound forensic social work knowledge. It would be appropriate to list or note this certificate among a professional’s specialized areas of training. It would not be appropriate to list as a credential after one’s name (e.g. Sallie Sue, FSWC).
The virtual program is offered over two days with Part 1 being held Tuesday  from 2:00-6:30 eastern time. Part 2 will be held Wednesday   2:00-5:30 eastern time.  Participation in both Part 1 and Part 2 is required to complete the certificate program.  The format will allow for viewing of the presentation and supporting materials as well as interaction between the presenters and participants in real time.  Registered participants will receive instructions on how to gain access to this event via email approximately one week prior to the event. 

Course completion requirements: To earn CE Credit social workers must log in at the scheduled time, attend the entire course and complete an online course evaluation. Certificates of completion will be emailed within 10 business days of course completion.
