Continuing Education Contact Hours 

Continuing Education Contact Hours for the 2021 Virtual Symposium will be provided by Adelphi University School of Social Work. Please review the requirements for continuing education in your local area or contact your state’s regulatory board to determine course approval for continuing education credits.

Social Workers participating in the IASWG 2021 Symposium are eligible to receive continuing education contact hours based on the number of CE-eligible presentations that you attend during the Pre-Symposium Institutes (June 7-8, 2021) and the Educational Presentations (June 9-12, 2021). Attendance is tracked using the Usage Report in Zoom. You MUST attend the sessions in their entirety from start to finish to be eligible for Continuing Education Contact Hours. Continuing Education Contact Hours will only be granted for attendance in the live sessions and NOT for recorded sessions.
