In order to be awarded the Foundations of Clinical Supervision Certificate, it is the expectation that students attend all scheduled sessions of the program. However, Smith understands that emergencies or unexpected events may interfere with a student attending a particular session or a part of a session. Aside from CE credits, the policy of the SSW Certificate programs is that students who miss significant portions of a seminar or a full session will be required to complete a make-up assignment. Assignments will be devised by the course instructor/certificate director to cover both missed content and learning time. Students who miss more than sessions of the program will not be awarded the Foundations of Clinical Supervision Certificate.
Smith certificate programs are comprised of a number of different courses often over a number of days. Many courses are standalone sessions but some courses may have two or three sessions. The total number of CE contact hours that a student may earn will be calculated based on the number of hours of fully attended courses. Partial credit may not be awarded to those who attend only a portion of a course. It is the attendees’ responsibility to contact their licensing board to determine eligibility to meet continuing education requirements. Please see individual course pages for the CE completion requirements and how the certificate is awarded.
Upon completing the evaluation for the in-person seminar, participants will be emailed their online certificate within 30 days of seminar completion. Participants should save and/or print the certificate upon receipt for their records. Receiving the CE certificate is contingent on completion of the evaluation and signing in and out of the seminar.
Continuing Education Credits
Continuing Education (CE) credits offered vary by course. It is the attendees' responsibility to contact their licensing board to determine eligibility to meet continuing education requirements. Please check individual course pages for individual course approval. Social workers completing this certificate program receive up to 25 continuing education credits.
