2015 EPAS Reaffirmation and Candidacy Training

Reaffirmation and Candidacy Workshops began in 2015 to assist programs with understanding the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards, as well as the policies and procedures of the reaffirmation process.

The upcoming face-to-face workshops are scheduled for the dates shown below:

Reaffirmation Workshops

  • Friday, April 24, 2020 (date full; registration closed)

Candidacy Workshop

  • Friday, February 21, 2020 (date full; registration closed)
  • Friday, September 25, 2020


If you have questions or are interested in registering for the Reaffirmation Workshop, please visit the CSWE Learning Academy.

All workshops are conducted at the CSWE office in Alexandria, VA, unless otherwise noted. For more information about Candidacy Workshops, please visit the Candidacy Workshops page.

In 2019 the Department of Accreditation released a new format for the 2015 EPAS training designed to make the training more accessible. Information will be available to programs later this year. We look forward to our continued partnership with social work programs across the country!
