Social Work CEU Academy

The Social Work Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Academy is a partnership between UNLV School of Social Work and UNLV Continuing Education. This program is designed for social work practitioners in Nevada and beyond. Over a three-and-a-half day period, social work practitioners will have the opportunity to earn 30 hours of CEUs (LSW & LASW) or 36 hours of CEUs (LCSW & LISW) to fully fulfill Nevada’s biennial continuing education requirements for license renewal. Courses will be offered Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon.
