LearnUFT courses for Social Workers
As a state-approved provider of Continuing Education hours for Licensed Master Social Workers, Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Mental Health Counselors, the UFT's LearnUFT program offers low-cost professional learning opportunities specifically designed to meet our 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.
Licensed Mental Health Counselors are also eligible to take these courses and earn CEUs.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the New York State Education Department is allowing self-study (online courses) for all continuing education units for licensed social workers and mental health counselors taken between March 1, 2020, and May 1, 2021. All LearnUFT-MAP professional development courses will be held virtually via Zoom.
