What do I need to do to get my certificate after taking a course?

A post-test and evaluation are required for each online seminar.  

A score of at least 80% on the post-test is required.

Your certificate will be automatically generated and emailed directly to you. Please make sure you check your spam, social, promotions, updates, and junk mail folders just in case it ends up there. 

What happens if I fail the post-test?

You may take the post-test up to 3 times.  Should you not pass the post-test after 3 attempts, please email us at contact@sweetinstitute.com and we will enroll you in the self-study version so you can review the course and have the opportunity to take the post-test again.

Are you an approved provider for Social Workers in my state?

SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

Can I get in-person hours toward my CEU credits by attending your live seminars?

Both our live online seminars and self-study webinars may provide CEU credits, however some states count self-study webinars and live online seminars  toward total licensing differently.

All 50 states licensing boards approve all live online seminars as distance learning/self-study credits. And 35 states count live online seminars  CEU credits the same as in-person CEU credits. Please contact your State Licensing Board to verify.

Please check the chart below for more information to see if your state counts live webinars as in-person CEUs:
