American Psychological Association CE credits are accepted by Florida's licensing Board (Department of Health). We've had no reports, over the years, of any problems in this connection in any of Florida's psych- or counseling-related licensure categories, CSW included. We offer the national organization's credits, because they're honored by the most licensing bodies in the most states these days. FYI... we understand that the NASW now also accepts APA approved CE credits for up to half of their periodic requirement. We look forward to having you at the seminar.
