Please Note:

New Applicants: If you are a new applicant for licensure, print your certificate and submit it to the board office with your application. Retain a copy for your records. When taken toward the requirement for a new license, the jurisprudence examination is not valid for continuing education during the initial licensing period.

For license renewal print your certificate and maintain it in case you are selected for audit. If selected for audit, submit the certificate to the board office with your additional continuing education documents.

Social workers whose licenses expire after December 31, 2008 are not required to take the jurisprudence examination in order to renew the license; however, social workers whose licenses expire after January 1, 2009 may take the jurisprudence examination and receive 3 hours of continuing education credit in professional ethics and social work values.
