How do I receive CEUs from CADER?

To receive CEU credit for this course, you will need to read the entire course and complete the CADER evaluation form. Additionally, you will have to take a post-assessment and obtain a score of 70% or higher to receive credit. When you have completed all of the course requirements, you will have the option to print your CEU certificate.

Who notifies my State Licensing Board of the courses I’ve completed?

CADER provides a report to the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) thru 11/08/2015 and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) listing all licensed social workers who have completed CADER online training courses and received CEUs.

Licensed social workers must contact their individual state jurisdiction to review current continuing education requirements for licensure renewal. It is up to licensees to be sure the content of the courses they take will meet the requirements of their board and that online courses are accepted.

What if I don’t have access to a printer?

Because our courses are available via the Internet, you can print a certificate from any computer with an Internet connection.  You do not have to print the certificate from the same computer on which you completed your course.

If you cannot access a computer with a printer, we are happy to fax you your certificate.  To order a printed certificate, please contact CADER by e-mail at cader@bu.edu or by phone at (617) 358-2635.
