General FAQs

Please read carefully as our CEU verification system for the  NASW Hybrid Conference differs from our usual CEU tracking system for live/virtual trainings.

To track attendee CEUs, at the in-person event you will get a stamp of attendance at the first session you attend and stamp of attendance for the last session you attend. CEUs will be calculated for time in-between. 

To track CEUs for the virtual day we will be utilizing Zoom analytics and CEU code words for each session to track your participation. To receive your CEUs, you will need to complete the following:

  1. Get the CEU Word for Each Workshop. For each workshop you attend during the conference, there will be a CEU code word provided by a chapter staff person during the session. Please be sure to pay attention and write down the CEU code word for your records.
  2. Complete the Survey. Immediately upon conclusion of the conference, you will receive an e-mail from the NASW Chapters for a conference survey. You will need to key in the CEU code words for each workshop you attended as well as complete the form in full. Be sure to click submit at the end. It is critical that you complete the survey ASAP in order to receive your CEUs. All CEUs will be mailed or e-mailed within 45 days of the conference.

If you do not receive the conference survey after the conference, be sure to check your e-mail’s spam folder. If you still cannot find the conference survey, contact the NASW-Illinois Chapter and request being resent the survey link.

Additional CEU Information

Will the virtual live conference CEUs qualify for in-person CEUs?

No, IDFPR still defines in-person CEUs as CEUs acquired from a course where you are physically present with the presenter. The in-person day will count toward in-person CEUs however. 

CEU Certificates

Participants are responsible for providing current contact information when submitting their conference survey responses. The NASW Chapters are not responsible for CEUs that are not received by conference participants if contact information is not current. CEUs will not be awarded for the Exhibit Hall.

NASW-Illinois Chapter  is approved to provide continuing education for Illinois LSWs, LCSWs, Type 73 (CPDUs), LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, LCPs, and some ICB credentials*. Additionally, it authorized for CEUs for Nevada social workers by the State of Nevada Board of Examiners for Social Workers and for North Dakota social workers by the North Dakota Board of Social Work Examiners.

*The Illinois Certifications Board, Inc. (ICB), approval has been applied for and we will update once approval is granted.

Participants fulfill all requirements listed above and participate in full throughout the entire conference may earn up to 6 CEUs for this year's conference.

In-Person attendees will have the option to purchase both in-person and virtual where they could earn an additional 4.5 CEUs or a total of 10.5.

Attendees are eligible for a full refund if the cancelation request is made 30 days prior to the event. Due to the built in expenses, the chapter is unable to refund requests made within 30 days of the event.  You must contact NASW-IL directly to receive a refund. 

Virtual Platform

While the conference as a whole will not be available after the event, some of the day’s sessions (permitting permission from the speakers) will be available for purchase as a recorded training in the Social Work Online CE Institute.
