Telehealth Notice

The State of Missouri social worker statutes require an individual to be licensed clinically if providing clinical services in the state. If the client is in Missouri at the time the services are provided, the professional must be licensed here.


2020 RENEWAL CYCLE INFORMATION

The State Committee for Social Workers voted that for ONLY the 2020 renewal cycle, the 15-hour limit of correspondence courses have been waived. All licensees will still be required to do the required hours of continuing professional education, but these hours can be any combination of live programs, webinars and correspondence courses and other approved methods. Other hourly limits for credits for publications, etc. remain in place. Do not forget that you are now required to complete 2 hours in suicide along with your required 3 hours in ethics.


Beginning June 1, 2020, the Division and its boards will begin to accept members of the public in its building but with some new rules and safeguards.
  • If you are an applicant or licensee, and you plan to hand deliver items, you will be required to remain in the lobby area to meet with a representative of your board. The Division will limit the number of members of the public in the lobby to THREE. Others will be required to remain in your vehicle or outside until you are able to meet with board staff. The Division and its boards kindly ask you to socially distance while visiting the Division. Please have any documents that require notarization completed, including the notarization, prior to your visit.
  • If you plan to visit the Division to hand deliver items or take an examination, you will be expected to answer questions regarding your health and any exposure to COVID 19. If you have any of the common symptoms of COVID 19, you will not be granted entry into the building. Staff will be on hand to meet you at the front of the building and you will be expected to maintain social distancing within the Division of Professional Registration.
  • If you are a member of the public who wishes to attend the public meeting of one of our boards, the board will provide you information to attend virtually. Those who do need to gain entry into the building for the meeting will be required to maintain social distancing in the building. You may be asked to wait outside if you have a scheduled appointment with the board and answer questions regarding your health and any exposure to COVID 19.

Go to the Continuing Education link and then to the Providers and Courses reporting CE to the Committee. Licensees will be able to track the CE they obtained from these providers if they fill out the CE consent form.
