Oregon Board of Licensed Social Workers

Rule Rule 877-025-0021
Reporting Requirements


(1)

Regulated social workers must report the completion of continuing education every two years in a manner prescribed by the board. The report must be made at the time the regulated social worker submits an application to renew a certificate or license except that in the case of a licensed clinical social worker.

(a)

A licensee whose license number ends with an odd number must submit the report with an application for renewal effective in an odd-numbered year.

(b)

A licensee whose license number ends with an even number must submit the report with an application for renewal effective in an even-numbered year.

(2)

The report is part of the renewal application and must contain information sufficient to demonstrate that the regulated social worker has met the requirements in this division of rules. A regulated social worker who fails to meet the requirements is subject to a denial of the application for renewal or to sanction by the board unless the failure was due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the regulated social worker and the regulated social worker agrees to a plan to compensate for the deficiency.

(3)

The Board conducts routine, random audits of compliance with continuing education requirements. A regulated social worker must retain completion certificates, program information, and other documents needed to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of this division of rules for a minimum of 24 months after reporting completion of continuing education requirements to the board and must provide them to the Board upon request.
