RULE §781.515Continuing Education Documentation

(a) Licensees must verify their credit hours on the board's license renewal form. Failing to submit the form with completed continuing education hours is grounds to deny the application for license renewal.

(b) Licensees must maintain documentation of their continuing education for three years.

(c) The board will review a random sample of applications for quality control. A licensee selected for review will be notified by mail and required to submit acceptable documentation of the continuing education listed on the continuing education report form. Documentation must specify the subject, date(s), credit hours, name of sponsor, board-issued sponsor approval number or other identifying sponsor information (if applicable) and board contact information. The licensee shall include such items as copies of attendance certificates or other attendance verification from the provider; grade reports or transcripts verifying that a college course is completed; letters from deans, directors, department chairs, or their representatives verifying a field instructor assignment; letters from program sponsors verifying the licensee presented continuing education; or copies of continuing education programs or other documentation verifying that the continuing education was relevant to social work when the program does not have an assigned provider number.
