The Illinois State University School of Social Work will present another LSW/LCSW exam preparation course. The class is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 16, and continues from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 17, in 357 State Farm Hall of Business.
Last year the School of Social Work offered one of the only area preparation courses for social work licensure as a pilot program. It was such a success that the school is doing it again.
“The LSW/LCSW license is important because it is how one becomes a true social worker in the state of Illinois and demonstrates a professional commitment to the field,” said Kathryn Wehrmann, a School of Social Work professor and Fulbright winner who is conducting the course.
The School of Social Work received positive reviews on its 2013 LSW/LCSW exam prep class:
The LSW/LCSW exam preparation course’s curriculum will be based on the Licensing Exam Preparation Services (LEAP). The cost for the course is $75 for community social workers, other attendees and $35 for Illinois State alumni and Illinois State School of Social Work fall 2012 to summer 2014 field instructors. There is no charge for current ISU School of Social Work students other than the purchase of the text.
Each attendee must purchase the book from the LEAP website, which also has practice exams. There will be a 20-percent discount for the text, reserved only for those taking the course through Illinois State. After registering for the course, you will be given the discount code.
Participants must register by Friday, May 9. To register or for more information, go to the event page on the School of Social Work’s website. This opportunity is open to the entire community.
