There are a handful of states that the NASW does not cover because those states want to maintain their independent authority to approve, or not, providers and courses. New York is one of these states. BUT: In New York State, the Office of Professions controls the approval process instead of the NASW. We are an approved provider by the NY State Office of Professions.In other words:
- In the State of New York, SWEET Institute is approved by the Office of Professions under Dr. Sidor Psychiatric Services as a CEU provider for social workers (#SW-0471) and mental health counselors (#MHC-0127).
- Our live and self-study webinars are individually approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in 46 additional states. SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
