Online Social Work License Exam Preparation Course

Posted On: 04/22/13 | Comments (0)

Online Social Work License Exam Preparation Course

Session 1: May 15 to June 14 (self-paced)

Your license is critical to successfully launching or advancing your social work career. However, results from the Association of Social Work Board show that up to 37% of social workers taking a licensing exam do not pass (rates vary by level of examination). Not passing your examination can be costly. You have to pay to retake the exam and, more importantly, you can risk losing career opportunities without your license.

Our structured exam preparation program can significantly increase the likelihood of passing the exam – on your first try! Your study plan will be tailored to best meet your learning needs. Our program has been designed to cover the Master's, Advanced Generalist, and Clinical licensure examination. The entire preparation program includes:
•Professional guidance on developing an individualized study plan
•Two-volume set of study guides with 1,600 practice questions
(published by the Social Work Examination Services Inc.)
•Live online coaching sessions
•Online forum for ongoing support
•Access to recorded lectures and podcasts on major content areas
•Other electronic resources to promote learning

Cost:
$300

Priority Deadline: April 27, 2013

As you are graduating and completing your graduation application on Wolverine Access, please remember to select lifetime forwarding from your umich account to the email you will be using post-graduation.

Once you graduate, you will no longer have your umich email unless you choose to keep it for a fee. If you do not keep your umich email address, the school allows you to forward emails from that email account to the one you will be using after graduation at no cost to you.

This is especially important for Career Services, as it allows us to contact you in the future to complete our Employment Survey and improve our services.
