Looking to explore new career opportunities or to gain insights into today's top social work issues? Our continuing education department offers a variety of social work courses, workshops, and events for your professional development. All programs are taught by experienced, qualified health professionals (QHPs).

Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service is recognized by The State Education Department’s State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers - #0066.

As per New York State Continuing Education Guidelines, attendees must be present for the entire class to receive Continuing Education Contact Hours. If you arrive late or leave early you will not receive a certificate for the CE hours and no refund will be issued.

Continuing education hours are accepted for licensed social workers in New Jersey because Fordham Graduate School of Social Service is CSWE-accredited. Our application for ACE approval is under review. In the meantime, please note that CEHs are also accepted in many other states. Please check with your state licensing office to determine whether NY State continuing education hours are accepted.

Please allow up to 30 calendar days after the workshop date to receive your certificate.
