ELITE programs are NOT approved for NJ Licenses or Certification.

The Board of Social Work Examiners (NJ Licensing Board) has asked NASW-NJ to share this information with all NJ social workers.

Elite Continuing Education has recently sent a book (see image on the left) filled with Continuing Education (CE) programs to many New Jersey Social workers. However, these courses will not be accepted by the NJ Board of Social Work Examiners (BSWE) for CEUs toward your NJ license requirement.

The reasons for this are outlined in “Tips for Understanding the New Jersey Social Work Regulations for Continuing Education” (at Review sub-section a) under the information entitled “Where can I take CE courses? What courses are accepted by the Licensing Board?”

You will note that courses offered by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW National) or any NASW State Chapter, including NASW-NJ, will be accepted. However, courses offered by a third party but only approved by NASW National are not currently accepted by the BSWE.

Please review the entire “Tips” document for full details on what courses are accepted for NJ Social Workers by the NJ BSWE.
