Learn more about our Continuing Education opportunities!
The varied and changing needs of children and families served by the child welfare system requires child welfare professionals to be informed about a multitude of practice strategies, policies, and populations. The intent of CASCW’s continuing education resources is to present the latest practice-relevant, research-based child welfare information in a variety of formats that are accessible, efficient and easy to use.
The modules are self-directed learning opportunities consisting of narrated Power Point presentations. In addition to the narrated slideshow, each presentation may contain a variety of media, including video clips, website links, or other audio files. The module may require you to visit an outside website, read an attached document, or watch a video. The length of most modules, including the time it will take you to access and complete any of the interactive media features or read documents and articles, should be between 1 and 2 hours.
Several counties have recently begun allowing online modules to count towards training hours. Check with your licensor for their policy on accepting online module training and the procedure on how to verify successful training completion.
