The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) is the nonprofit organization composed of and owned by the social work regulatory boards and colleges of all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and all 10 Canadian provinces. We are the only nonprofit organization dedicated to social work regulation. Our mission is to strengthen protection of the public by providing support and services to our member boards.
ASWB owns and maintains the social work licensing examinations that are used to test a social worker’s competence to practice ethically and safely. The Examination Committee meets up to four times a year to review questions for the exams. Exams are administered throughout the year at secure test centers in North America and abroad.
