CE Approvals

At Health programs meet the continuing education criteria of chapter 645.281 for social workers in Iowa.

As a Jointly Accredited Organization, Amedco is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program.  Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program.  State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. Amedco maintains responsibility for this course.

Iowa social workers can earn twelve (12) of their twenty-seven (27) credits online through athealth.com.
