Additional Information

Live Webinars vs. Recorded Online Learning

The Minnesota Board of Social Work makes a distinction between how live webinars and recorded webinars can be counted towards continuing education hours for licensure renewal.

  • Live, interactive webinars can be counted as regular CEUs.
  • Recorded webinars must be counted as independent learning CEUs

This is purely informational. Please visit the MN Board of Social Work's website for the most current information about fulfilling licensure requirements.
