Oklahoma-licensed social workers have an annual license renewal with a December 31st deadline. In order to renew a license, sixteen (16) board approved continuing education hours are required. Eight (8) hours of continuing education are allowed from home study (online courses). The board accepts ASWB approval of continuing education courses.
The main objective of continuing education credits is to assure the highest standards for the social work profession. All licensees are required to participate in continuing educational activities that will build upon existing competence and knowledge gained from prior educational experiences.
Professional Development Resources is approved as a provider of continuing education for social workers by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB Provider #1046, ACE Program). Oklahoma social workers can earn eight (8) of the required continuing education hours online at www.pdresources.org.
