Acing the Test to Drop the A:

Helpful hints when transitioning from a LCSWA to LCSW


This workshop is the evidence of a long conversation between two cohorts. This workshop began as a conversation, that transitioned into great ideas and blossomed into a great CEU workshop!

As previous LCSWA's we know the hard work that is placed into blossoming into a fully licensed LCSW. That is why we created this workshop! Acing the test to drop the A, isn't all about passing the ASWB clinical exam, it's about passing the test of being a LCSWA who successfully and graciously becomes an LCSW. In this workshop you will be provided information, encouragement and other helpful hints that can be used while pursuing your license; specifically study tools, guidance tools and support tools! This workshop is approved and endorsed by NASW-NC for 3 hours of CE, & offered virtually in google classroom. This is an opportunity you cannot beat! The road to becoming an LCSW is not an easy feat, register for our workshop to add some tips to your survival kit as you embark on this rewarding journey.
