LearnUFT courses for Social Workers

As a state-approved provider of Continuing Education hours for Licensed Master of Social Workers and Licensed Clinical Social Workers, the UFT's LearnUFT program offers low-cost professional learning opportunities specifically designed to meet our social work members’ needs.

Beginning January 1, 2015, each Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) must complete 36 hours of approved continuing education courses for each triennial registration period. No more than 12 hours of continuing education activities in any 36 month period, or one-third of the total hours in periods of other length, may consist of self-study educational activities from New York State Education Department-approved providers.
