ARE WE TRADITIONAL HOME STUDY OR INDEPENDENT STUDY? NO. Unlike traditional Home Study or Independent Study CE Providers, CEU By Net DOES_NOT mail course materials or quiz materials, OR receive such transmitted materials by mail or by any other route. All CEU activity is performed online in an INTERACTIVE manner, with all actions recorded in 'real time' within the data base. Quizzes are taken and scored and recorded in real time, interactively - including a record of how many attempts were required to pass a quiz. When the quiz has been passed, the participant is immediately provided feedback about the responses which he or she gave which were incorrect, as well as the correct answers to the questions that were missed (which is very important in multiple choice questions). The records of all course enrollment and quiz activity of each program participant are recorded to the second and are maintained indefinitely within our internal data system for audit purposes.
Part 1902 Chapter 4: Continuing Education and Licensure Renewal; Reinstatement
Rule 4.1 CONTINUING EDUCATION
A. Philosophy Continuing education means instruction and learning which fosters the enhancement of general or specialized social work practice, values, knowledge, and skills.
1. CONTINUING EDUCATION: The continuing education offerings for each discipline (social workers and marriage and family therapists) are approved independently. Licensees should NOT assume that an approved offering for one discipline is also approved for the other discipline. The MBOE website maintains separate lists of approved continuing education offerings for social workers and marriage and family therapists. The Board shall credit continuing education for social workers as follows. Parts of programs which meet the criteria set forth in these rules and regulations (relating to Types of Continuing Education and Criteria for Approval of Continuing Education Activities) shall be credited on a one-for-one basis with one clock-hour credit for each one clock-hour spent in the continuing education activity. . . . .
2. DESIGNATED PROVIDERS (DPs): are organizations or institutions determined by the MS Board of Examiners SW Continuing Education Committee (SWCEC) to meet the standards for continuing education. These organizations hold standing by application, review and approval for a two (2) year period of time, during which they must consistently comply with all requirements. Complaints and random audits by MBOE members or their designees may result in removal from the status at any time and may prohibit renewal. Organizations who are approved for this status shall have their DP number and dates of approval on all documentation, and will be listed with this information for public review and continuing education resources on the MBOE website (www. swmft.ms.gov) and any publications therein. Only those organizations that have previously held three successful programs approved for social worker continuing education by the Board, SWCEC, or its designee may apply for DP status. Applications for DP status may be obtained from the Board’s office or through the Board’s website at www.swmft.ms.gov. The following organizations are automatically approved for social worker continuing education by the MBOE and do not need to complete DP application process for program approval:
a. Any program approved by the national NASW office, or any NASW Chapter;
b. American Association for Marriage & Family Therapy or any of its state chapters;
c. Any state chapter of Council on Social Work Education approved schools of social work (In order for continuing education offerings to be approved by this type of designated provider, the school of social work must be actively engaged in the planning and presentation of the offering);
d. Association of Social Work Boards or any state licensing board affiliated with.
