Licenses must be renewed every two years for social workers in Arkansas. The renewal must be done by the last day of the month when the worker’s license was originally issued. The renewal fee for an Arkansas social work license is $80. Renewal instructions are located directly on the Board’s website. Personal checks are not accepted, so send in a cashier’s check or money order. Before renewing your license, 48 hours of continuing education (CE) must be completed during each renewal period. The maximum CE hours allowed for giving presentations and preparing manuscripts is 10. The maximum for CE hours attained through online courses is 20.
