SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE RENEWAL FOR SOCIAL WORKERS

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE RENEWAL FOR SOCIAL WORKERS

 

Due to COVID-19, updates to the online renewal system could not be made in time for the start of the September 2020 renewal period. I have listed the special instructions below:

  • 40 Continuing Education hours. These hours must have been completed during the two years leading up to your current license expiration date. Of these hours, 4 must be in the Ethics category, 2 must be in the Cultural Diversity category and the Mandated Reporting one hour must be entered in the General category . Do not enter more than 40 hours.

  • Unused hours(FORMERLY KNOWN AS CARRYOVER HOURS): Continuing Education (CE) hours that were completed within the 3 years prior to the current expiration date of your license that have not been submitted for previous license renewal may be carried over from one renewal to the next. Ethics, cultural diversity  and mandated reporting hours may not be carried over.  All unused CE hours must be maintained by the licensee and not by the Board.

  • Any unused hours you have from the previous renewal period should be reflected in the CE portion of the online application. Please enter all carryover or unused hours with the following date: 10/01/2018. The current system will not let you enter a date prior to 10/01/2018.

  • If you experience any problems, please email: info@swmft.ms.gov
