Social Welfare Licensing Exam
Many social welfare students who finished their studies in May or this summer will be taking the licensing exam offered by the Association of Social Work Boards.
The ASWB Masters exam is a four hour multiple choice exam that tests social work knowledge. 170 questions are administered although only 150 are scored. In order to become a licensed social worker, this exam must be taken. There are no set dates or times for the exam and an appointment must be made at a test center in order to register.
The New York State licensing procedures require passage of this exam to practice in the state.
