Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes section 467E-11, continuing education ("CE") will be required to renew a LBSW, LSW, or LCSW license.
Beginning with the renewal for the licensing triennium 7/1/2016 - 6/30/2019, and prior to every triennial renewal thereafter, each licensee shall complete 45 credit hours of CE within the 3-year period preceding the renewal date; provided that a minimum of 3 credit hours are in ethics. This means that, in order to renew for the licensing triennium starting on 7/1/2016, the licensee shall complete 45 credit hours of CE between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019.
A first-time licensee is exempt from the CE requirement for the first license renewal. For instance, if you were initially issued a license between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019, you are exempt from the CE requirement for this renewal period only.
