    During the 2018-2019 school year, SSWAA will be offering 3 webinars, each available for 1.5 CEUs.  In order to improve the service and allow for storage of the webinars, SSWAA has purchased a webinar platform and contracted with a university to provide CEUs. 

    SSWAA certainly hopes you will attend the live webinar – the best way to receive the information and interact with the presenter and other attendees.  But, what if you are unavailable at the time of the live webinar?  No worries! You will receive a link to any webinar you purchase and be able to access it after the webinar airs.  See the SSWAA website for additional webinar information. www.sswaa.org

    Please note:

    • CEUs will be available for anyone who completes and attends the entire LIVE webinar.  
    • Webinars cannot be purchased after the webinar series is completed.
    • Webinars must be viewed and evaluations completed by June 30 to receive CEUs.
    • CEU certificates for webinars taking place in the spring will be issued in July.

    The first workshop will have 4 learning goals:

    • School SWs will learn what types of material to collect or not collect.
    • School SWs will learn how to ensure that the information is accurate.
    • School SWs will learn ways to protect confidential information.
    • School SWs will learn guidelines for allowing access to others.
