AHEAD in Texas is an approved provider for Social Work CEUs in Texas and would be happy to provide a certificate of attendance to anyone that would like one to submit to a certifying or licensing board to request CEUs through other organizations. We encourage you to research your licensing and certification requirements, as several organizations have changed their requirements in recent years.
